Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren said on Saturday that his government plans to provide social security pensions to all beneficiaries – the elderly, widows, people with disabilities and others – and their numbers will not be set in blocks or districts.
Previously, many people did not get any benefit from pension schemes because there was a quota for each zone, the prime minister said at a public meeting in Kukaiyatand in Ramgarh district.
Soren launched a universal retirement plan on State Day on November 15. Under the scheme, every person over 60 years of age, widows and needy women over 18 years of age, single women over 45 years of age, disabled citizens over five years of age and anyone suffering from HIV/AIDS, with the exception of taxpayers and those who work or are retired in the public sector and government agencies will be paid Rs 1000 per month.
“We have started the Sarkar Apke Dwar program to reach the villagers to resolve their grievances related to the Aadhaar Card, Voter Card, Ration Card, Social Security Pension, Caste Certificate and Income Certificate on the spot,” said the former minister. .
In addition to the universal pension plan, Soren also announced on Nov. 15 the ”Aapke Adhikar, Aapki Sarkar, Aapke Dwar” (Your Rights, Your Government, Your Door) program, which aims to bring the government’s plans to the beneficiaries. .
He said the state government has started giving extra food grains to poor families and has taken initiatives to provide skilled people with a soft loan of 25 lakh to start a business.
