The Punjab government has asked deputy commissioners to pay pension to beneficiaries identified under the old-age pension scheme only if their documents are authentic, according to media reports.

The move is aimed at preventing fraud as in the past many beneficiaries did not possess relevant documents. Hence, the disbursement of pension was discontinued, the reports further added.

The government has said that all beneficiaries should contact the SDM or the deputy commissioner concerned with all the relevant documents justifying their claim for the old-age pension. The old-age pension could be restored to them after verifying their documents, the reports concluded.
