Aadhaar Not Mandatory For Getting Pension, Announces Govt


Desk: After the 30th meeting of the Standing Committee of Voluntary Agencies, Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh said that Aadhaar card is not mandatory for the central government employees to get their pension.

Jitendra said Aadhaar is an additional facility to enable the use of technology for submission of life certificate without the need for visiting banks.

This comes in the wake of some retired employees facing difficulty in getting the pension in the absence of Aadhaar linkage with their bank accounts.

There are about 48.41 lakh central government employees and 61.17 lakh pensioners.
