Manohar Lal while taking a step forward towards digitally empowering the beneficiaries today announced three services which have been brought on the IT platform. These include Pro-active Divyang Pension Service, ‘Tau se pucho’, whatsapp chat bot and online room booking facility at PWD (B&R) rest houses.
While addressing the press conference held here today the Chief Minister said that these three IT initiatives are certainly going to prove a milestone in the State Government’s vision of paperless and transparent governance.
Divulging the details about Pro-active Divyang Pension Service, Manohar Lal said that reiterating the state government’s commitment to deliver all government services at the beneficiaries’ doorsteps, now we have decided to give automated pension benefits to Persons With Disabilities (PwDs).
“Now all such beneficiaries will not have to visit the offices to get their benefits,” said the Chief Minister.
Manohar Lal further shared that data of PwDs having more than 60 percent disability that is available with the Parivar Informatics Data Repository will be certified by the Haryana Parivar Pehchan Authority every month.
“The data of all such PWDs found eligible after verification (as per the eligibility criteria prescribed by the scheme) will be shared with the SEWA Department,” informed Manohar Lal.
