The good news for pensioners is that they are not required to provide proof of survival in the future. So because the central government led by PM Narendra Modi has come up with a different plan.
As per the rule in force today, if pensioners do not provide proof of survival every year, their pension is terminated. But now the pensioners will be relieved of this hassle.
The central government will soon introduce a high-tech mechanism called Face Recognition System for pensioners.
According to this technology, now the face of the pensioner will be the proof that he is alive. The new technology was unveiled by Minister of State Jitendra Singh.
*What is Face Recognition Technology?*:
According to this, the bank is not required to provide proof of survival in writing. The Bank officials will verify the faces of pensioners through a mobile app.
As soon as the scanning of the face is completed, the concerned pensioner will be registered in the application.
This will be the digital proof of being alive.
Many pensioners are unable to go to the bank due to old age. As such, this new technology will definitely be useful for pensioners.
