If a/c holder has filled nomination column in the a/c opening form then nomination shall be registered in register and nomination number, date of nomination, nomination registration number is entered in the pass book of RD, MIS, Saving a/c under the signature of postmaster. In case of NSC nomination registration number, date is entered on NSC.

You may refer to the a/c pass book and check the details. If PO has not entered nomination number and nominee details in pass book you may submit a representation under acknowledgment to the Sub Post master/Post master and seek a written reply by registered post so as to reach you say within next 7 days.

Thereafter you may approach Post Master General of your city with a written complaint and seek redressal of your complaint and process to obtain copy of a/c opening form, nomination registration form ( if nomination was made later), to draw the payment by legal heir of the deceased. PO must be having a well laid deceased depositor policy. On your complaint Po is duty bound to block the payment.

You may also approach DSO ( Dist. Savings Officer) of your city.

Some of the forms/policies are enclosed. However you may obtain prescribed forms/formats in use from PO/Post Master.

Please read "If a/c holder has filled nomination column in the a/c opening form then nomination shall be registered in register and nomination number, date of nomination, nomination registration number is entered in the pass book of RD, MIS, Saving a/c under the signature of postmaster."

as

"If a/c holder has filled nomination column in the a/c opening form then nomination shall be registered in register and nomination number, date of nomination, name of nominee is entered in respective coumns in the pass book of RD, MIS, Saving a/c under the signature of sub/postmaster."

Therefore you may check the passbook.
