Haryana Pariwar Suraksha Nyas established in Haryana, all insurance schemes to be brought under the trust

In a bid to bring various insurance schemes under one umbrella, the Manohar Lal Khattar Government in Haryana has established Haryana Pariwar Suraksha Nyas.

The Trust has been formed to consolidate lakhs of beneficiaries of the existing insurance schemes of various Government departments under one roof to avoid duplication of beneficiaries, effective implementation of schemes and saving additional cost to the state exchequer.

A State Government’s notification issued on Wednesday stated, “The Governor of Haryana is pleased to establish Haryana Pariwar Suraksha Nyas under the provisions of the Indian Trust Act, 1862, as amended from time and time.”

The terms and conditions for the functioning of the Trust are yet to be notified by the State Government.

The objective of establishing the Trust is to ensure that there is no duplication of insurance schemes and beneficiaries in the state. At present, budgets for such schemes are allocated to different departments and rationalization of such schemes will also help the government save additional cost to the state exchequer. The State Government pays crores of rupees as premium under such insurance schemes annually yet many eligible beneficiaries could not avail the benefits.

Notably, the State Government had earlier launched ParivarPehchan Patra (PPP) initiative to give benefits of the schemes and services being given by various departments.  About 64 lakh families in the state have been registered in the PPP to get a single unique family ID to avail benefits under government schemes and services.

Election Laws (Amendment) Bill

To Link Adhaar with the Electoral roll, The Election Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2021, will be introduced in Lok Sabha.

Highlights:

  • When the Election Laws (Amendment) Bill 2021 is approved, electoral registration officers will ask for the Aadhaar number of persons who want to register as voters.
  • To verify your identification, they will want your Aadhaar number. The bill also proposes allowing electoral registration officers to request Aadhaar numbers from people already on the electoral record.
  • This will be done to verify the entries in the electoral roll and to identify the registration of the same person’s name in the electoral roll of more than one constituency or the registration of the same name in the same constituency more than once.
  • The bill will amend several provisions of the Representation of the People Act, 1950 and 1951.
  • The 1950 Act will be changed to enable the linkage of electoral roll data with the Aadhaar ecosystem. This modification will mitigate the threat of multiple enrolments of the same person in different areas.
