Five months ago, the poor widow, who came to close the account of the deceased husband, returned home with a check of two lakh rupees of Prime Minister Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY). The widow became emotional after receiving the check of PM Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana.
Husband died five months ago
Balram, a resident of Ranthi village of Munsiyari tehsil, died in the month of June. Balram used to take care of the children by doing daily wages. The death of Balaram, the only member of the household, left his wife Vimala Devi the problem of raising himself and their two small children. After the death of her husband, she is working hard to support her children and herself.
The account of the deceased was in SBI
Vimala’s husband Balram had a bank account in the State Bank of India Munsiyari branch, in which the money deposited was negligible. Seeing the helplessness of not being able to deposit the amount in the account in future also, Vimla reached the bank to close the account and submitted an application to bank manager bank Varun Gupta to close the bank account.
The deceased had PM Jeevan Jyoti Insurance
When bank manager Varun Gupta checked Balram’s account, it was found that he had got Prime Minister Jeevan Jyoti insurance. Telling this to Vimala Devi, the manager got her filled in the form in his office itself and recorded the insurance amount. On Thursday, Vimala Devi got emotional after receiving a check for the approved insurance amount of Rs 2 lakh.
Got emotional after receiving the check, expressed gratitude
Vimla said that she is having a tough day with her children after the death of her husband. In this hour, the staff including the bank manager has helped him and provided him with insurance, which is no less than a boon for his family. On receiving the cheque, he thanked the bank staff including the bank manager.
Many people are not aware of the scheme, should be publicity
Former village head organization president Devendra Singh said that most of the people are not even aware of this scheme yet. He has demanded its publicity, dissemination in rural areas.
