    Sir/Madam Nameshkar. this is to inform that the department has issued manual ink written identity cards to old central government pensioners those who are retired before 2011 with pasting old photo & the condition of the identity card becomes very weak.

    Instead of this type of issuef manual identity cards my humble suggestion is to please link the Railway pensioners data to the NIC & DEITY database http://www.digitallocker.gov.in so that the old retired Railway pensioners can easily download the digital Aadhaar profile photo based pensioners identity certificate instead of card at least once in every two years as per Aadhaar demographic updated identity card time to time. This will save time manpower & also save the cost of identity cards.

    This is for kind information to the honorable department of pension & pensioners welfare & for the honorable ministry of Railways & for promotion of digital technology.

    With regards,
    Thanking you,
    Yours obidently,

  2. I have not so far got Identity card meant for Pensioners. Is this mandatory and if so, enlighten the procedure to obtain the same . Thanking you in advance.

  3. If new pensioner’s identity cards are to be issued with state
    emblem, then what about the cards already issued by the respective Railways ?
    will they be valid or not ? If not will new cards with state emblem be isssued?
    If so when ?
