The Mukhyamantri Vriddha Pension Yojna (MMVPY) for poor people above 60 years was launched by the State of Bihar, for its citizens from the Chief Minister ‘Nitish Kumar’.

Which state introduced Mukhyamantri Vriddha Pension Yojna for poor people above 60 years?

According to the scheme the poor people above the age of 60 years will get Rs. 400 per month and those who are above the age of 80 years will get Rs. 500 per month. The introduced scheme is effective from April 1, 2019, and it will not cover any of the retired government employees under it. Everyone, irrespective of caste, community or religion, will be able to avail pension under this scheme.

Under the scheme ‘Nitish Kumar’ Bihar Chief Minister informed that the state government had arranged a special fund of Rs. 18,000 crore under the scheme which "will give help to give the elderly poor respect and dignity".

The process of registration under the scheme involves a survey to identify the people of above and equal to 60 years as well the identification of the beneficiary and their identification on the basis of Adhaar Card along with other details and a bank account as well. At present, about 2 Lakh people have applied online for the pension and avail the benefits under Mukhyamantri Vriddha Pension Yojana.

Apart from this, the government is expecting that this count of applicants will increase and move up to 35 to 36 lakhs and the scheme will benefit many poor and old peoples.
