Dear learned expertise.
My colleague has approached the pf office at Mumbai (Bandra) for pf and pension claim of her deceased husband. After verification they insisted for guardianship certificate since she is a Muslim and the law insists for it though she is the natural guardian as a mother.
May I kindly request to help us with the procedure and since she is in taluka place should she obtain the guardianship certificate from district judge only or taluka should be fine. Please guide.

The family member’s certificate shall be obtained from the Tahsildar where her husband died. The family member certificate is valid throughout the life of the applicant.

It appears that facts are misconceived. Where is the question of guardian for a person who, admittedly, is not a minor.
