Woman Draws Pension of Her Dead Sister for Ten Years!

Rajamma, resident of Veeradevanapura in the taluk, had died October 7, 2007. Her elder sister Shantamma, was drawing her (younger sister's) pension thus duping the Bank. .....
The surprising part is, every year, the pensioner has to personally go to the Bank and sign on the Life Certificate. How was it possible for Shanthamma to draw the pension for ten years without the Bank being aware of it? The Bank people after all these years, finally had a doubt and lodged a complaint with the Nanjangud Town Police who have registered a case and are investigating.

(The flip side is -- it is a sorry sight to see the very old and infirm who are not able to climb the steps of the Banks or Government offices located in the first or second floors [1st floor [US]= 2nd floor [UK/India]..always used to confuse me], struggling to climb the steps with the help of their relatives to go and sign the certificates.)
