In a bid to assist and reduce the troubles of the pensioners, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a pension management software SAMPANN (System for Authority and Pension Management) scheme.
SAMPANN software is expected to help around 5 lakh pensioners of the telecom department by allowing them to track the status of their pension online sitting at their home. All the tedious processes of processing, sanctioning, authorization, grievance redressal and payment have now come under a common roof with the help of the seamless software SAMPANN, thereby making it convenient and hassle-free. A direct SMS alert will be sent on the registered mobile number of the pensioner when the pension is credited in the bank account. Also, the messages regarding DR arrears/ Arrears are sent. The other factors like timely disbursement of the accurate amount of payment are also taken care of by this software.
Prime Minister Modi ensured that the Centre is determined to adapt more and more technological advancement to ensure the ‘ease of living’ of the citizens. Also, the government is focusing on increasing the accessibility of citizen-centric services. He also said that the India Post Payments Bank have significantly helped in the expansion of banking services through post offices.
The PM added that more than three lakh Common Service Centres have created a network aimed at providing a wide range of services digitally to the people living in the rural areas of the country.
