Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday said that the State Government’s target is to cover maximum beneficiaries under various schemes by March 31, 2022.
While releasing the premium amount of Rs 5.33 crore to 3,14,446 beneficiaries of Mukhya Mantri Parivar Samridhi Yojna (MMPSY) during a state-level function held through video conferencing, the Chief Minister said that since 2014, ensuring the reach of the benefits of various government schemes and programmes to those in the last of the pyramid while following the path of Antyodaya as shown by Pt. Deendayal Upadhyaya has remained the utmost priority of the State Government.
During the programme, out of the total 3,14,446 beneficiaries under MMPSY, as many as 29 beneficiaries enrolled under Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY), Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY) and all the three Maandhan schemes including Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maandhan Yojana (PMKMY), Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Maan-dhan (PMSYMY), and Pradhan Mantri Laghu Vyapari Mandhan Pension Yojana (PMLVMY) received the scheme acknowledgement letter from the Chief Minister, while rest of the beneficiaries received the same from the Deputy Commissioners at the programme held at district level.
Under MMPSY, beneficiaries are eligible to get a benefit of Rs 6000 per year and this amount will be used to pay the beneficiary's share of centrally sponsored schemes for pension and insurance, informed the Chief Minister.
“In today’s programme an amount of Rs 3,32,82,480 has been released directly into the accounts of 1,00,856 beneficiaries of PMJJBY, Rs 21,94,992 to 1,82,916 beneficiaries of PMSBY and Rs 1,78,22,500 to 30,674 beneficiaries of Maandhan schemes (PMKMY, PMSYMY, PMLVMY),” he said.
Khattar further informed that the MMPSY scheme is an umbrella of five Central Government schemes wherein the premium of PMJJBY, PMSBY and three Maandhan schemes under MMPSY, will be reimbursed to the beneficiaries by the State Government whose family income is less than or equal to Rs. 1.80 lakh per annum.
He said that there are 10.73 lakh such families registered under Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) whose annual income is less than or equal to Rs 1.80 lakh and 40 lakh beneficiaries eligible to get benefits under MMPSY.
Out of the said beneficiaries’ data, 16.81 lakh beneficiaries are eligible to get the benefit of PMJJBY and PMSBY schemes.
“The disbursement to the remaining eligible beneficiaries will also be made in due course of time. For executing this task, the State Government has a budget provision to the tune of Rs 821 crore during the Financial Year 2021-22 in the MMPSY scheme,” he added.
The Chief Minister further said all such families having annual income of Rs 1.80 lakh per annum and who are yet not included in the Socio-Economic and Caste Census (SECC) 2011 will also be included in the Ayushman Bharat scheme and their premium will also be paid by the state government.
