50 years pension for Dalits, Adivasis: Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren announced

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren said that members of the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe communities will now be eligible for pension at 50 years instead of 60 years in the state.

Hemant Soren made this announcement at a program held in Ranchi on the completion of four years of the JMM government.

“Government has decided to provide pension scheme facility to tribals, Dalits after completion of 50 years. The death rate is increasing in this community and they are not able to get employment after 60 years. This facility will especially benefit the vulnerable tribal communities who are under the threat of extinction,” said the Jharkhand Chief Minister.

“Even after 20 years of the formation of Jharkhand state, only 16 lakh people were getting pension facility. However, since our government came into existence, the number of pensioners has increased to 36 lakh,” said Soren.

In the same case, Jharkhand CM Rs.4547 crore. A total of 343 projects were laid foundation stones.

Modi lashed out at the BJP-led central government for making empty promises to provide jobs to the youth in the state.

In the program, 7 thousand people were given government job recruitment orders. On the same occasion, the Chief Minister said that the filling of 45 thousand vacant jobs is also in progress.
