The annual report of the CAG was presented in the House on Wednesday, the fifth day of the budget session of the Punjab Legislative Assembly. In the report, while disclosing the fraud in the social security scheme, it has been said that for 3 years, pension was distributed in the name of the dead people and no one paid any attention to it.

 There has been a big disclosure of rigging in the old age pension being given to the elderly under the social security scheme in Punjab. The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) in its last year’s report has said that old age pensions continued to be given in the state to people who had died three years ago. More than one lakh such people were also detected who were below the age prescribed for old age pension. The CAG has also revealed that maximum cases of this rigging have come to the fore in Patiala, the district of former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh.

The annual report of the CAG was presented in the House on Wednesday, the fifth day of the budget session of the Punjab Legislative Assembly. In the report, while disclosing the fraud in the social security scheme, it has been said that for 3 years, pension was distributed in the name of the dead people and no one paid any attention to it. At the same time, 50053 men and 59151 women, who were not entitled to old age pension due to young age, also continued to be given pension. Apart from these,the names of 76848 people along with their date of birth were not recorded. The report also revealed that in the FAWD scheme, which is only for women, 12047 people have been identified as men. Whereas 23754 persons, whose age was less than 18 years, were not eligible for financial benefits under this scheme.

The maximum number of cases in the ineligible have been reported from Patiala. According to the report, 6455 people were detected in Patiala, 1871 in Ludhiana, 629 in Ropar, 204 in Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar, 698 in SAS Nagar, Mohali. Their self-declaration (self-declaration) regarding their stay in Punjab for the last 3 years was also found to be fake.

9.89 crore distributed to duplicate beneficiaries
The CAG report states that 9.89 crore was paid from April, 2017 to July, 2020, passing on additional benefits to 8286 duplicate beneficiaries. The report said that as per the guidelines framed by the state government, an applicant can take only one type of social security pension. Despite this, 2226 women, whose father’s name, Aadhar number or bank account number was one, continued to be given financial assistance under both the schemes – OAP and FAWD scheme. All this amount was sanctioned during January 1996 to 2020.
