The Haryana Government has decided to pay the premium of the Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana under which the BPL families are paid Rs 2 lakh after the death of the insured person.
Besides the poor, who have lost their family members prematurely during the second Covid wave and for some reason could not fill the form for the benefit of this scheme, will be given Rs 2 lakh by the state. This was announced by CM Manohar Lal Khattar while addressing a digital press conference here on Thursday.
He urged the poor families to fill up the form so that they could get the benefit of the scheme by May 31.
For the eligible BPL families, the premium of this scheme will be deposited in their account every year in future also after deducting it from their accounts.
