If the employee has made the nominee then , there should not be requirement on succession certificate because succession certificate is required when there is no nominee and the legal heir of the deceased person can claim the movable items. 

However if the department  is insisting then ask them to give in writing. On getting the same in writing, we suggest that you should file a Writ Petition against the Government thereby seeking release of GPF.
