“Yes, you read that headline right. The Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar-led Haryana government has decided to introduce a pension scheme for unmarried people in the age group between 45 and 60 years in the state. The announcement was made by the CM during a public outreach event in response to a demand by a 60-year-old bachelor. People having an annual earning of less than 1.8 lakh are eligible for the scheme. According to the report prepared by the CM’s office, about 1.25 lakh unmarried people from the state are likely to benefit from the scheme. However, the official number is yet to be decided. The amount for the pension scheme could be similar to that of the old age pension scheme. However, government officials are yet to confirm the official figure. The Haryana government is already disbursing pensions to senior citizens, widows, differently-abled individuals, dwarfs, and transgenders in the state. During the program, CM Khattar also announced an increase in the old-age pension by Rs 250, taking it to Rs 3,000 per month. According to the figures from 2020, Haryana had about 35,000 brides from other states like West Bengal, Assam, Kerala, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttarakhand. Haryana is scheduled to witness assembly polls this year. That’s it for this report. For more such news and updates, subscribe to HW News Englis
