Delhi Government Decided to send Old-age pension through Bank Accounts only

The Delhi Government decided to give old-age pension only through banks. This has been given through post offices also. There are around three lakh old-age pensioners and around 81000 were accepting pension through post offices. Now they are compelled to open bank account within six months to receive their pension.

At a meeting of the Delhi Cabinet presided by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit it was decided to pay the old-age pension through bank accounts only, said Social Welfare Minister Mangat Ram Singhal.

The Delhi government pays the old-age pension to poor people aged 60 years or above. The government hopes that paying through banks help to transfer the pension money smoothly. An official said that, they had decided to pay only through banks as that will help in smooth transfer of pension money. More than 2, 13,000 beneficiaries have already been receiving their pension through banks.

This is may be felt as difficult for some aged persons but for the time being this will be good for the pensioners.
