Delhi govt asks 3 civic bodies for speedy pension
New Delhi: Delhi government today directed the three municipal corporations to ensure speedy disbursal of old age and widow pension to beneficiaries.
The instruction has been issued by Health Minister A K Walia said "there are a large number of instances where beneficiaries have not received any pension due for the last six months".
The Minister asked the corporations to ensure electronic transfer of pension to bank accounts of beneficiaries.
He also instructed the municipal bodies to stop the practice of booking of community halls and parks for social functions on the basis of letters from the ward councilor. He said an online booking system should be put in place for such bookings.
"The municipal bodies have been told to introduce a transparent procedure for booking and allotment of community halls and parks," said a senior official.
Walia also asked the corporations to strictly implement the provisions of Delhi Prevention of Defacement of Properties Act, 2007 to ensure a proper look for the city.
