Mukhyamantri Pension Yojana in UP by Yogi
Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, has blocked a pension scheme that would have benefitted nearly five million people around the state. This comes amid a questioning over how the scheme is organized and how it may be used. Added hikes are being used on other schemes even as this earlier one was rejected in some way.
The Samajwadi Pension Yojana is the particular scheme being blocked. This was organized by the Yadav government but the scheme has been stopped. There are issues over whether or not this can actually reach the 5.5 million beneficiaries that the scheme was intended to support. The scheme will continue when it is capable of getting enough people and could even be expanded to include as many as twice the number of original beneficiaries.
This is paired alongside support for added funds for married women. This includes help with managing some of the costs associated with weddings. This is included as a part of additions to help with improving upon how a number of charges and funds may be used on a number of key services.
Plans For the Pension
The pension scheme is going to be expanded in the future with a few additional features in mind. The scheme would be known as the Mukhyamantri Pension Scheme in accordance with the CM’s desire to use the CM term in many schemes being used. There are a few particular points in the pension that are expected to be used in the near future:
- People who are below the poverty line will be provided a monthly pension. This would be worth around Rs. 500 each month to every person who qualifies to take advantage of the plan.
- The old age pension is expected to be increased from Rs. 400 to Rs. 1000. This is one of the key increases that would be added into the process to make it more effective.
- Widows will receive pensions of Rs. 1000. This part is especially designed with older widows in mind who have less of a revenue stream to work with due to one’s status.
- The disability pension will be increased from Rs. 300 to Rs. 500. The increase would be used for those who qualify as being disabled in accordance with general standards for determining who is disabled.
A New Board To Start
A social welfare board will be responsible for reviewing and analyzing what might have to be handled in the process. A series of Baba Saheb Ambedkar Community Centres will be formed around many Dalit locations. Also, land will be provided at reduced rates to people who are aiming to provide jobs to others although some proof would be required to help with getting access to this.
Added Marriage Support
An added coverage plan called the Kanyadaan Yojana would also be added for women who are married and are in some of the more deprived regions of the state. This would allow the state government to cover some of the costs associated with legal functions relating to a wedding. The key is to keep women from having to spend a dowry during the event.
People in the government would work to get about 20 women from around the state who are looking to get married and bear the costs of their marriages. This would be handled based on who needs the monetary support the most. This will work within a mass marriage ceremony between all people.
Aadhaar Support Is Included
There will be plan to manage the pension and payment support features in the entire plan in accordance with the Aadhaar account system. All people who benefit from the schemes and other setups will be supported through getting their money linked to accounts supported by the Aadhaar system. This may be used as a means of managing a number of different terms for getting the money handled in the system managed right.
How Much Money Involved?
It is not fully certain as to how much money is going to be involved with getting the pension scheme up and running. Welfare schemes will include many beneficiaries but it is expected that several crore is required to get all pensions ready. However, the support from Dalits and OBCs that helped the BJP to win elections in recent time does provide some added support for getting enough money prepared and ready for a variety of general welfare plans.
The plans for managing general pension support are expected to be a necessity for operating the general needs that people hold. It is not fully certain at this point as to what may be used at a given time based on what people might want to do in the future. This especially comes amid consideration for how well different funds can be used.
