Samarth Vriddh SEWA Ashram

Why in News?

Under the Samarth Vriddh SEWA Ashram Scheme 2024, the district administration is preparing to establish an old-age home in Gurgaon.

Key Points

  • This initiative marks the inauguration of the first government-operated old-age home, and proposals are being welcomed from Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs), trusts, societies, and corporations as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts.
  • The initiative aims to provide a comfortable and safe environment for the elderly who require assistance and care.
  • The old-age home will offer various facilities and services to ensure the well-being of its residents, such as nutritious meals, medical care, recreational activities, and social interaction opportunities.
  • To access the scheme's benefits, individuals must possess the Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP).
  • The scheme categorizes beneficiaries into two groups: one includes those earning less than Rs 2 lakh per year, while the other comprises individuals earning over Rs 2 lakh annually but facing abandonment or lack of care.
    • Those falling under the first category will receive complimentary accommodation, while those earning above Rs 2 lakh will be enrolled in the 'Pay and stay' program, with fees determined by local authorities.

Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) Scheme

  • The PPP scheme was formally launched in July 2019 to achieve Haryana government’s vision for ‘paperless’ and ‘faceless’ delivery of schemes, services and benefits offered by the state government.
    • Under this, each family is considered a single unit and gets an 8-digit unique identification number, called family ID.
    • 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.
  • The primary objective of Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) is to create authentic, verified and reliable data of all families in Haryana.

Samarth Vriddh SEWA Ashram Scheme, 2024

  • This scheme was launched in 2024, by the Haryana government.
  • The main objective of the Scheme is to improve the quality of life of Senior Citizens who are residents of the State by providing the following amenities:
