Rajendra Pal Gautam, Minister of Social Welfare and Women and Child Development, on Tuesday, directed the officials to step up the process of resolving the all pending cases of financial assistance and pension schemes
Gautam chaired a meeting and reviewed all the financial assistance schemes and pension schemes. He issued strict instructions to the officers that pending cases under any scheme should be fixed immediately.
The Minister said that under the Delhi Ladli scheme, the officials should conduct home visit of beneficiaries who are unable to come forward to take maturity benefit under the scheme. Officials said that under this scheme, even after giving public notices repeatedly in the newspapers, the beneficiaries are not coming forward to take the maturity benefit of the scheme.
While reviewing the pending cases of various pension schemes under Women and Child Development Department as well as the social welfare department, Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam ordered the officers to clear all the pending cases of all the districts within a week.
Minister Gautam said that the department should also organize the process of taking life certificates from the concerned bank so that the real beneficiaries can get the benefit and public money can be kept safe from fraudsters.
