UP to start Rani Laxmi Bai Pension scheme | 25.75 lakh families to be benefitted in 2012-13
Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav at a cabinet meet here today decided to start Rani Laxmibai Pension Scheme. Under this, beneficiaries chosen for this scheme will get Rs 400 per month in two six-monthly instalments sent directly to their bank account.

Under the pension scheme, the primary beneficiary would be a woman head of a family and in absence of such a condition only a man would be chosen the beneficiary. In the current financial year 2012-13 as many as 25.75 lakh poor families are likely to be reached through this scheme and a cost of Rs 1,289 crore will be incurred. This scheme will be for the below poverty line (BPL) families who have been left out of the BPL lists and are unable to get the benefits of the BPL ration Cards, Antodyaya Yojna or any other pension scheme meant for them.

Under the Rani Laxmi Bai pension Scheme, a target to benefit 50% SC and ST beneficiaries has been set by the state government. Under the scheme approved by the state cabinet, the base line for getting the benefits of this scheme would be a five member family whose annual income is Rs 19,884 in rural areas and Rs 25,546 in the urban areas. The deserving families, after due diligence would be selected in a transparent manner by the SDM/District level officials in front of the gram sabha's open meeting.

A provision has also been made to ensure that if the beneficiary of the Rani Laxmi Bai Pension Scheme becomes beneficiary of other similar schemes like BPL scheme, Antyodya Yojna or some other pension scheme, he/she would be automatically disqualified from the scheme and his name struck off the list.
