Ensure Workers Registration in a Time Bound Manner: DC Baramulla

Baramulla, 05 March: Deputy Commissioner Baramulla, Dr G N Itoo today formally launches Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Maan-dhan (PM-SYM) scheme here at a grand function which marked the participation of a huge gathering of beneficiaries.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Speaking on the occasion, the DC complimented the beneficiaries and said that the scheme provides social and economic security to the vulnerable sections of the society. He urged for availing the benefits of the scheme and impressed upon disseminating awareness so that more and more beneficiaries are brought into its ambit.

Emphasizing upon the concerned agencies to speed up the task of registration process, the DC directed not to leave any beneficiary uncovered. He also called for prompt coordination between concerned departments for the effective implementation of the scheme.

Meanwhile, Dr Itoo distributed registration cards among 30 beneficiaries to mark the symbolic representation of the scheme where he was informed that about 2000 against the target of 15000 beneficiaries have been registered wherein the DC stressed for achieving the target within stipulated timeframe.

It is worthwhile to mention that the scheme is being launched today by the Prime Minister which aims at ensuring old age protection for unorganized workers whose monthly income is Rs. 15,000 per month or less and are in the age group of 18-40 years. This scheme assured pension of Rs 3000 per month which shall be given to the beneficiary.

Among the other ADC Baramulla, ADC Sopore, district and sectoral officers were present on the occasion.
