Chandigarh, July 21- The Haryana Government has issued a pension notification for unmarried and widower beneficiaries, in which provision has been made to give pension to unmarried beneficiaries up to the age of 45 years and widower beneficiaries after 40 years. No new condition of any kind has been added to the beneficiaries in both the categories and unmarried and widower beneficiaries will also get pension on the same conditions which are given under old age, widow or other schemes.

        An official spokesperson said today that various misleading information is being circulated about both the beneficiaries, while the truth is that no new condition has been added to the notification or the provisions for pension for both the categories of beneficiaries. Beneficiaries in both the categories will be able to avail the benefits of this scheme on the same conditions which have been kept for other pension holder beneficiaries.

        Provision has been made in the notification issued by the government to give pension to the widower on attaining the age of 40 years, provided the own verified income does not exceed Rs. 3 lakhs. Similarly, a provision has been added to give pension to the unmarried on attaining the age of 45 years. The limit of annual income for them as per PPP has been kept at Rs. 1.80 lakh. If there is any change in the beneficiaries of both the categories, then the beneficiary will have to inform the District Social Welfare Officer with the information related to it. Apart from this, if a beneficiary gives wrong information or hides any information, then the pension will be withdrawn along with interest only at that time (When wrong information is provided).
