Haryana Widower Pension Scheme: Chief Minister of Haryana is decided to launch a new scheme for the people who have lost their wife. It is the first time in a country where such financial supports were only provided to the widows, on their husband death. A government official said that not only women men also feel grief and insecure after the death of their loved ones.
There are many families in the state where female member of the family is the only source of income. Such families lose everything after the death of the wife. Keeping all these points in the mind government of Haryana is considering providing monthly pension to the widower.
Haryana already provides monthly pension of Rs 1600 to 650,000 people of the state every month. In a newspaper, it was written that current pension scheme for the widow is an act of social discrimination on the basis of the gender. Most of the governments provided financial assistance to the widows from the weak financial background because many times they are boycotted by their family after the husband’s death.
There is no accountability for the number of widowers in the state. This scheme will be launched by the government next year after the amendment of the law.
