File list of pending applications for pension: SHRC directs SW deptt

The State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) on Thursday said that widows are being paid pension ‘prospectively’ and not ‘retrospectively’ by the social welfare department.
“In a small tehsil like Chadoora, 9350 applications are pending and it appears that no fresh case has been sanctioned since 2009. The beneficiaries have to wait for decades for their pensions,” the commission said in an order after hearing a case.
The order further states, “Over ten thousand applications of beneficiaries are pending in one Tehsil, the pendency in rest of Jammu and Kashmir must be in lakhs then.”
The Commission has asked the director social welfare Kashmir as well as Jammu to file the list of applications pending before the department by Ist May.
