Urgent effort is needed for its construction. The ‘face authentication technology’ for digital life certificates may be widely advertised by banks, the statement said. According to the statement, these programs are expected to go a long way in making the life of pensioners easier.
Who get the benefit?
Let us tell you that at present those employees of the organized sector whose basic salary (Basic Pay and Dearness Allowance) is up to Rs 15,000, essentially EPS-95 come under. Let us tell you that for a long time, there has been a demand for more pension on higher contribution among the members of ‘‘EPFO. Thus it is being actively considered to bring a new pension scheme for those whose monthly basic salary is more than Rs 15,000.’’
