Haryana cabinet approves monthly disability pension for Thalassemia and Haemophilia patients

Patients in Haryana suffering from Thalassemia and Haemophilia, with a family income of up to Rs 3 lakh per annum, will now be entitled to a monthly disability pension of Rs 3000. This decision, expected to benefit approximately 2083 patients, will result in an annual disbursement of Rs 7.49 crore at the present rate of Rs. 3000 per month.

The Haryana Cabinet, convened under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal on Tuesday, approved the inclusion of Thalassemia and Haemophilia diseases in the existing notification under "The Haryana Divyang Pension Rules, 2016". This decision aims to extend disability pension benefits to such patients and will alleviate the significant financial burden faced by these patients.

Last year, Chief Minister Manohar Lal had announced to include the Thalassemia and Haemophilia patients for grant of disability pension for the families having earning up to Rs 3 lakh annually. According to the Health Department's report (2002), there are approximately 1300 cases of Thalassemia and about 783 cases of Haemophilia in the State of Haryana.

The verification of Thalassemia and Haemophilia certificates will be conducted annually by the respective Civil Surgeon to ascertain the patient's current status and whether they have been cured or not.
