There have been day in and day out reports of hardships faced by old-age pensioners, disabled persons, widows, and the transgender community in Union Territory.

Many including social activists, political leadership and beneficiaries are expressing their dismay over the directive which has overwhelmed the latter and are now rushing towards the government offices to register themselves to avail of the social welfare pension scheme.

The beneficiaries of the old age pension scheme, while expressing their resentment against the renewal of the age certificate say that they are being made to move from one office to another after several of their documents were being rejected.

What has compounded the problems for the beneficiaries is that they have to wait for hours in severe cold. Many of them include women and specially-abled persons, who have to wait in queues to complete the process.

These people allege that the administration has created a problem for them and they are very curt while dealing with us. It makes them feel bad. they are old people and in need. Some of them have to travel from far-flung areas and there is a risk for old age persons in this process.

The beneficiaries, who are old, including the disabled, are being made to sit for hours in sub-zero temperatures outside concerned District Medical Boards, which is very difficult for those living in far-flung areas.

Several applicants have returned home after days without getting their details uploaded to the official site. Others claim that the monthly assistance of Rs 1000 is very less and needs to be enhanced.

This pension is sustenance to thousands of disabled, widows, divorcees, transgender people, and elderly people most of whom are not in a condition to fetch the required disability certificates, affidavits, Aadhar details, age and domicile certificates from the concerned officers.
