Center Praises Jharkhand’s Efforts to Implement Wellness Plans |  Ranchi News
RANCHI: Ministry of rural development of the Union (Murder) has appreciated the efforts made by Jharkhand State Livelihood Promotion Society (JSLPS) in planning and implementing strategies to extend centrally sponsored social security welfare schemes among members of self-help groups (SHG) and their families.
During a national review of the social schemes under the MoRD, the deputy and additional secretaries of the department appreciated the Beema Karayein Abhiyan adopted by JSLPS for different welfare projects. The exercise started on August 7 and covered 50% of the beneficiaries of different insurance and pension funds in one month.
According to official state figures, 62% of the total target beneficiaries have been covered by Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojna (PM-JAY), while 59% receive benefits under Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojna (PMSBY). JSLPS was also able to cover 51% of the beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Jeewan Jyoti Beema Yojna (PMJJBY) and 26% of Atal Pension Yojna (APY).
Speaking with TOI, JSLPS Executive Director Nancy Sahay said: “We have been able to cover 12,94,894 beneficiaries of the 20,91,290 selected under the PM-JAY health insurance scheme, while 17,55,218 of the 29,78,149 Target beneficiaries have been covered under the accident insurance scheme. In addition, we have also covered 934,381 of the 18,15,680 beneficiaries of the PMJJBY, a life insurance plan ”.
He also said that 86,321 of 337,760 beneficiaries have also been covered by the APY, a pension plan of the Center.
Sahay attributed the good coverage of the plans to the banks, as well as their staff members who were actively involved in the special month-long campaign. “We had started the Beema Karayein Abhiyan as a special initiative under which we made sure that adequate information about the schemes reached the targeted beneficiaries.”
He said details about the premiums, as well as their benefits, are communicated in detail to each member of the self-help group. “After a few days of awareness program, which included the distribution of IEC material and through community radio, as well as videos, we started to get a good response and coverage within a month,” he added.
Meanwhile, the MoRD has directed JSLPS to cover the entire target population by the end of October. Sahay said he is confident of meeting the deadline, emphasizing that beneficiaries can easily join, as they can take advantage of interest-free loans granted to them under the self-employment scheme to pay their premiums.
In particular, PM-JAY provides Rs 5-lakh medical coverage to each insured member. While PMSBY and PMJJBY give a security of Rs 2-lakh each in cases of death and accident of an insured family member, APY aims to provide a stable income to those who are 60 years or older.
