In a significant move towards social welfare, the Haryana Government has recently introduced a groundbreaking scheme aimed at providing financial assistance to unmarried individuals in the state. The “Haryana Pension for Unmarried People” program has been met with great enthusiasm as it addresses the unique challenges faced by this segment of society and offers a lifeline for financial stability.
Under this scheme, unmarried individuals who may not have access to traditional sources of income can now avail themselves of financial support to meet their basic needs and improve their quality of life. The Haryana Government recognizes the importance of ensuring a dignified and secure future for all its citizens, regardless of their marital status.
The Need for Haryana Pension for Unmarried People
Unmarried individuals often face financial difficulties due to various circumstances such as being the sole breadwinners of their families, lack of support networks, or limited job opportunities. Recognizing these challenges, the Haryana Government has taken a proactive step by introducing a pension scheme exclusively for unmarried people.
Eligibility and Benefits
To be eligible for the Haryana Pension for Unmarried People, individuals must meet certain criteria set by the government. The scheme is open to both men and women who are unmarried, divorced, or widowed. Applicants must be residents of Haryana and fulfill the age requirements specified by the scheme.
Once eligible, beneficiaries will receive a monthly pension to support their livelihood. The pension amount may vary based on factors such as age, income, and any additional support systems they may already have. The financial assistance provided aims to alleviate the financial burden and empower unmarried individuals to lead a more secure and fulfilling life.
The beneficiaries should be aged between 45 and 60 years; in the case of unmarried people, their annual income should be less than Rs 1.8 lakh.
From next month, unmarried people between the age of 45 and 60 years in Haryana will be getting a monthly pension of Rs 2,750, provided their annual income is less than Rs 1.8 lakh, announced Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar Thursday. The pension will also be applicable to widowers and widows of the same age group whose annual income is not above Rs 3 lakh.
Giving the logic behind these decisions, CM Khattar said, “In case of a single man or woman, he or she has certain personal needs that shall get some help from the government’s side with this monthly pension”.
Application Process and Documentation
Applying for the Haryana Pension for Unmarried People is a straightforward process. Interested individuals need to obtain the application form from the official website of the Haryana Government or the designated offices. The application form requires applicants to provide necessary personal information, proof of age, identity, residence, and marital status.
Applicants must ensure that they attach all required documents to support their application. These documents include birth certificates, identity proofs, address proofs, and any relevant documents indicating their marital status. Once the application is complete, it can be submitted either in person or through designated online portals.
Impact and Future Prospects
The introduction of the Haryana Pension for Unmarried People has already begun to make a positive impact on the lives of many individuals in the state. It has provided much-needed financial support to those who were previously struggling to make ends meet. By ensuring a steady income, the scheme has brought about increased stability, reduced vulnerability, and improved overall well-being among the unmarried population.
Looking ahead, the Haryana Government plans to further expand the scope of the scheme and enhance its benefits. Continuous efforts are being made to raise awareness about the program, reach out to eligible individuals, and streamline the application process for maximum efficiency and convenience.
