A programme has been launched to introduce Electronic Identity Cards to pensioners since the identification card currently in use was initiated in the 1960s.

The new identification card has been introduced with the help of new technology. With the use of this card, pensioners will be able to carry out transactions such as receiving their pension, among others.

Director General of the Department of Pensions, Sunil Hettiarachchi stated that in the future, utility payments such as electricity bills and insurance covers could be paid using the new electronic ID.
