[Apply] Delhi Widow Pension Scheme 2021 Online Registration – Check Vidhwa Pension Yojana List / Documents / Eligibility & Guidelines

Widows usually have a tough time in a culturally regressive society, which is unfortunate for them. They not only have to deal with the grief of the loss they have endured, but they also have to wade through societal stigma all alone, and this stigma comes with financial repercussions as well.

To deal with the stigma and enable widowed women to make a life for themselves and not remain as a mere remnant of the tragedy that occurred in their lives, the Delhi government initiated the Widow empowerment program – the Vidhwa Pension Yojana.

About the Delhi Widow Pension Scheme 

The Delhi government is inviting widowed women in the state to avail of the benefits set aside for widow empowerment. This will largely help break the stigma surrounding widows and enable them to take care of bereaved children (if any).

Under the implementation of the Delhi Vidhwa Pension Yojana, women in distress who are divorced or have lost their husbands can apply for the monthly pension amount of ₹2,500. 

The Delhi Widow Pension scheme online registration forms are available on the official e-district portal of the Delhi State government website.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
