Karnal, November 16
The Haryana Government that started the system of payment of old-age and widow pension through banks to ensure timely payment of pension has gone a step further to facilitate the pensioners by tying up with the banks to make payments on the doorstep of the payee.

Under the new scheme, the pension will be deposited in the account of the pensioner before the 10th of every month and the representatives of the bank will go to the village themselves and distribute the amount on the doorstep of the pensioner.

The bank will also pay interest on the amount kept in the bank and a Customer Service Centre will be opened for every 700 pensioners where a representative will be present on all working days except Sundays and holidays, District Social Welfare Officer Baljit Singh said.

He said applications had been invited for registering new beneficiaries under the pension scheme and urged all eligible persons to submit their applications by November 30.

Persons above the age of 60 years and with an annual income below Rs 50,000 are eligible for pension, he added. The applications along with birth certificates, ration cards or voter cards will be received in the office of the Block Development and Panchayat officer concerned.
