GOOD NEWS FOR PENSIONERS

LogoA short while ago, my mobile phone beeped with an SMS and the content is :

Central Govt pensioner or Defense pensioner 
need not go to the bank or Gazetted officer 
for getting a Life Certificate. 
Use your Aadhar number at home or
at the closest enrolment centre.  
Send JPL <space> PINCODE to 7738299899 
to find closest enrolment Centre.

In fact, the news is nothing to do for me as I am not a pensioner.  But the blogger in me thought to spread the message to wider public.   Why because, it is a step by  Government of India to use the technology to solve the long standing problem.

Recently, my boss's mother-law (75 plus) who was bed-ridden was not paid pension for three months on the pretext of  not turning up before the bank to submit a Life Certificate.  In fact, she fractured her leg in  Delhi but he hails from Punjab.  However, after much persuasion, the bank people at her native place agreed to request  a branch  in Delhi  to depute an officer to visit her home for getting a signature on Life Certificate to release her pension arrears.  In fact, I was the guy who coordinated the local bank people to get the work done.   Just imagine the process that  compels the senior citizens to follow in that advanced age.

Now with the government's linking of Aadhar with a wide array of government schemes/services including pension matters is really  a cheering  news for retired government servants.  

My intention to share this  news is that good news naturally find little space in newspapers who want only hot news due to which developmental news  always takes a back seat thereby  may not reach the right person in the right time.   Bloggers must change that trend.
