PM Narendra Modi has launched SAMPANN Yojana as a comprehensive pension management scheme (CPMS) on 29 December 2018 in Varanasi. SAMPANN (System for Authority and Pension Management) Scheme will enable the pensioners to track the status of their pension online while sitting at their home. The official PM Sampann Scheme Portal dotpension.gov.in has been launched by Modi. This scheme will greatly facilitate pensioners of the Telecom department and would help in timely disbursement of pension.
The Prime Minister said that the central govt. is working consistently to ensure ease of living and greater ease of access to citizen centric services. Union govt. has also launched India Post Payments Bank to expand banking services through post offices. A network of 3 lakh common service centers (CSCs) will provide a range of services digitally to people in rural areas.
PM said that Digital India will facilitate people, bring transparency in govt. working and would eliminate corruption.
PM SAMPANN Yojana Portal for Pensioners
While officially launching the Pradhan Mantri SAMPANN Yojana, PM said that from now onward the pension department will have to do all the work in a given time frame. PM Modi launches the official Sampann Yojana portal at dotpension.gov.in. This portal will enable dept. officials to perform all the work from the clearance of pension to deliverance of pension by themselves. Now all the pensioners can track the status of their pension online while sitting at their home.
Benefits of Comprehensive Pension Management Scheme Portal
The pensioners would be able to avail the following benefits:-
- Direct disbursement of pension on timely basis without the requirement of intermediaries.
- This Sampann portal would serve as Single window system for complete pension process.
- There would be an online grievance management for the pensioners and will reduces paper work.
- People can easily track pension status from home which will encourages transparency and accountability.
- This scheme covers around 3.5 lakh current pensioners / family pensioners and around 1.5 lakh future retirees.
- Moreover there would be faster processing of arrears and revision of pension.
The Department of Pension has decided to introduce a seamless pension processing system through integrated software, which would bring the processing, sanctioning, authorisation and payment units under a common platform.
Moreover, acknowledging the lack of institutional knowledge and inability of the CPPCs and bank branches to resolve the pension related grievances of the pensioners, the department has decided to introduce direct credit of pension to accounts of pensioners, leveraging the modern technology to realise the goal of “Sanchar Pension, Seedha Vitaran”.
Now a days, the total number of internet connections across the country has been increased. Around 1 lakh panchayats in the country are now connected with broadband. So, this move to launch SAMPANN scheme will facilitate people in rural areas to a great extent as they will not have to circle around govt. offices for pension status or other pension related issues.
