HP Swaran Jayanti Nari Sambal Yojana (स्वर्ण जयंती नारी संबल योजना) 2022
CM Jair Ram Thakur announces a new scheme “Swaran Jayanti Naari Sambal Yojana” from 2021-22. The main objective is to expand social security net for elderly women of Himachal Pradesh. All the eligible elderly women in the age group of 65-69 years, irrespective of any income criteria, will be provided social security pension of Rs. 1,000 per month.
This Swaran Jayanti Nari Sambal Yojana will benefit about 60,000 elderly women and an amount of Rs. 55 crore is proposed to be spent on it. The benefit of old age pension will be given to the senior citizens having no other Government pensioner in their family or who do not belong to a well off family. This will ensure that only the deserving get the benefit. Necessary guidelines will be issued separately in this regard.
Approximately, 6.60 lakh persons will be covered under different social security pension schemes with the implementation of these announcements. This will entail an expenditure of about Rs.1,050 crore.
