Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, June 25: The union government has launched various centrally sponsored schemes and viz a viz social welfare schemes in Jammu and Kashmir, but many poor families in Srinagar district alleges that, the scheme is theoretically sound but practically the people were not given due benefits of the schemes so for.
According to sources that, the department of social welfare has introduced various schemes for the welfare of people, and at many places people are still looking for their forms that they had submitted in the department concerned.
There is an Integrated Social Security Scheme (ISSS), National Old Age Pension Scheme (NOAPS) Indra Gandhi National Old Age Pension Scheme (IGNOAPS) and dozens of other schemes for the backward students.
Sources said that, in 2014 some people from Qamarwari area submitted their ISSS forms at social welfare office Srinagar, but almost five years have passed and they were not given any benefit of these schemes.
Even there are people that are above 68 years old, and fact of the matter is that Government of India has made many schemes for the welfare of poor people, but one fails to understand that why the department is not reviewing the old cases for sanction from the concerned authorities, sources told early times.
When we go to Social Welfare Department they ask us to come other day, and almost we do visit maximum times but of no avail, I am not only poor person, but am handicapped too.
There are thousands of widows, orphans, disabled, poor and elderly people who are taking benefit of their schemes, but it seems that our forms have gone disappeared either due to their negligence or they have left their forms somewhere else, said sources while quoting the elderly persons.
It was the sole responsibility of the department concerned to see every case of the deserving persons, and they are supposed to provide assistance to the deserving people under different Central and State welfare schemes.
Last time I was said that the Addhar card is mandatory to take benefits of the scheme, but if there is no Addhar card or number, does it mean that the poor people will be left out without knowing their compulsions why they had applied for the schemes.
There are other districts of Kashmir valley, where many people have been also left at the mercy of God, as they have been also left unattended, but the scheme was to uplift the poor masses by the department concerned, sources informed.
