Disbursement of Old Age, Disability and Widow Pensions
Resolution of technical issues, if and when faced by the Banks, in dealing with assistance being disbursed through them is an ongoing process. No Bank has raised any issue related to any specific training requirement for their human resources for handling the pension issues.
Several Banks in many states are using the services of Bank Sakhi’s coming from self help groups to provide cost effective solutions for delivery of pensions at home.
This information was provided by the Minister of State for Rural Development, Shri Ram Kripal Yadav today in a written reply to a Lok Sabha question.
