Special sessions were organized on income tax matters related to pensioners as well as digital means of submitting annual life certificates, said the statement by the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions.

Face authentication technology for digital life certificates may be advertised extensively by banks, the statement said. Digital life certificate and face authentication technology would be a game-changer for pensioners and banks in the submission of life certificates, it said.

Four such awareness programs will be conducted in collaboration with the State Bank of India to cover the whole country, it said.
