Aadhaar Not Mandatory For Getting Pension: Govt
DELHI: “The Center has made it clear that there is no need for Aadhaar card for central government employees to get their pension”, Union Minister of State Jitendra Singh said. In the 30th meeting of the Standing Committee of Voluntary Agencies has held recently. In that minister said the Aadhaar is not necessary for government employees to get a pension. Aadhaar will use an additional facility to utilize the technology without having to go to banks for filing a certificate of life.
Some central government employees who are retired have difficulties in obtaining a pension when their bank accounts are not linked to Aadhaar. There are 48.41 lakh central government employees in the country and 61.17 lakh pensioners. Jitendra Singh has said that the central government has taken several steps to ensure the welfare of employees and pensioners. In this order, the minimum pension of Rs 9,000 has been made and the grant limit has been raised to Rs 20 lakh and fixed medical allowance is Rs 1,000 per month. A 12 digit Aadhaar card will be issued by the Indian Identity Authority (UIDAI). The card identifies the address as an identification document. Have a look at this video.
