Why in News?

The Haryana government is facing a backlash from a section of stakeholders over some of its e-initiatives, the opposition has turned it into an election issue and promised to roll them back on coming to power.

Key Points

  • Parivar Pehchan Patra and Meri Fasal Mera Byora are the e-initiatives, due to which the government is facing backlash.
    • The Parivar Pehchan Patra has been marred by privacy concerns and large-scale discrepancies in user details, causing inconvenience to people.
    • According to the sources, Meri Fasal Mera Byora, which provides multiple services to farmers through a single portal, was a good initiative, but poor implementation and loopholes not just caused hassles to farmers but also led to instances of fraud and corruption.

Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) Scheme

    • Family IDs are also linked to independent schemes like scholarships, subsidies and pensions, so as to ensure consistency and reliability.
    • It also enables automatic selection of beneficiaries of various schemes, subsidies and pensions.
  • Objective: The primary objective of Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) is to create authentic, verified and reliable data of all families in Haryana.

Meri Fasal Mera Byora
