It is reported in Economic Times dated 13th June 2015, that there are about 6.05 lakh centenarians in the country and out of them about 5 lakhs are pensioners!
The information has been collected on the basis of the payment made to the pensioners through the banks. However, now the government has asked the banks to verify the list of pensioners to find out whether the same is the correct figure.
If there are 5 lakh pensioners in the country above 100 years, it is a good sign. But it is almost unbelievable since there are only a total of about 6 lakh centenarians in the country.
