Aadhaar mandatory for pensioners- (Press Information Bureau) (14 Dec 2016)
There is, at present, no proposal to make Aadhaar seeding mandatory for release of pension to the Central Government pensioners. Eighty-seven percent of Central Government pensioners of all age categories have seeded their bank accounts with Aadhaar number. The remaining thirteen percent, including those Government pensioners of the age of 80 and 90 years have not yet seeded their bank accounts with Aadhaar number. The Government has made efforts to seed accounts of all Central Government pensioners with Aadhaar numbers so as to enable them to benefit from the additional facility of submission of Digital Life Certificate. Public Sector Banks are authorised to enroll pensioners for issue of Aadhaar number, including old and infirm pensioners.
