Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Wednesday directed all Heads of Departments to link the schemes and services of their respective departments with Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) by November 1, 2021.
The Chief Minister presided over a meeting of the Heads of Departments here regarding the implementation of PPP in the state. He said that PPP is an ambitious scheme of the State Government, which aims to ensure the benefit of all the government welfare schemes and services to the eligible families. This flagship scheme of the State Government has been launched in the spirit of Antyodaya, he said.
Khattar said that Haryana is the first state in the country to make such a scheme for making Parivar Pehechan Patra of each family. So far, this scheme has neither been started in the country nor abroad.
Referring to the benefits of the PPP scheme, Chief Minister said that the immediate benefits of linking PPP in college admissions have been seen. The college principals themselves are appreciating this step.
After linking PPP with admission, the automatic verification of student data was done. With this, the work that used to take 15 minutes is now completed in just 5 minutes and the students do not have to go here and there for their verification work, he said.
Khattar said that the present era is of Information Technology (IT). Services are being simplified with the use of IT. With the introduction of PPP, it will be easy to know who is eligible to take benefit of which scheme and who has not got the benefit of these schemes. Many times people, who are not genuine beneficiaries, are found taking benefits of schemes . Earlier there was no system to verify the beneficiaries, now there will be a complete transparency in the implementation of government schemes through PPP, he added.
The Chief Minister further said that now the benefits of government schemes will also be available through smart cards. Smart cards will be linked with PPP. Initially, Ayushman Bharat, Public Ration Distribution System, Mukhyamantri Parivar Samridhi Yojana and Pension Scheme are being linked with smart cards, he said.

The Chief Minister said that people working voluntarily in the state would be added under the Haryana Volunteer Programme. There are many tasks for the government, in such a situation, services of volunteers including youth, retired employees, would be taken in the field of education, skill development, sports, agriculture etc.

This Samarpan Yojana would be launched on the birth anniversary of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay on September 25, he added.
