National Family Benefit Scheme has become a center of corruption in UP. One big scam after another is coming to the fore. Now 29 fake beneficiaries have been found in two villages of Lucknow. In these, the husbands of 21 women are shown dead even though they are alive. So that, 30 thousand rupees per beneficiary can be distributed under the scheme. Amar Ujala is continuously exposing the corruption in this scheme. If this scheme is honestly investigated in the entire state, then some officers are not ruling out the possibility of even bigger scams coming to the fore.

A total of 88 people were given the benefit of the scheme in the year 2019-20 and 2020-21 in village Banthra and Chandrawal of Sarojininagar tehsil of Lucknow. Under this scheme, benefits are given to those families who are living below the poverty line. Also, the earning head should be less than 60 years of age at the time of death. Normally the amount is transferred to the wife’s bank account on the death of the husband.

Milan Devi, Rekha, Soni, Shashi, Sunita, Rama, Sangeeta Sharma, Raghurai, Ruchi Savita, Ram Rani, Sanno, Rajkumari, Sneela Devi, Munni, Kiran, Vandana, Jyoti, Kajal Devi, Leela, in Banthra in the last two years. Ranjana and Bajia were given the benefit of this scheme on the alleged death of their husband. It has come to the fore in the investigation that the husbands of these 21 women are respectively Ram Prakash, Barati, Dharamveer, Rajol, Shankar, Ram Kumar, Satya Prakash, Rajjan Lal, Vinod Kumar, Bhai Lal, Amrit Lal, Bhagwati, Chhanga, Mohd. Idris, Ramchandra, Mannu, Sangeeta, Vivek Kumar, Rajendra Kumar, Sujit and Raju are still alive. That is, these women were paid fraudulently.

Government employees and brokers take half the amount in the account
Many of these husbands, shown dead in the video recordings near Amar Ujala, have told that 30 thousand rupees came in their wife’s accounts. But, the person with whose efforts he got this amount, he took 10-15 thousand rupees. Apart from this, Suresh Kumar, husband of Maya Devi of Banthra, died on May 17, 2016, but by showing this date as November 14, 2019 in the online application, the benefit of the scheme was given. Whereas, there is a provision to give the benefit of the scheme if the application is made within a year of the death.

Meaning, Maya Devi was also paid fraudulently. Kallu, the husband of Ramrati of Banthra, had died on 28 May 2009, but she was given the benefit of the scheme in the year 2019-20. Similarly, Chandrawal’s Batasha wife Lekhai, Piyara’s wife Rajjan, Banthra’s Kiran Devi wife Subhash Chandra, Shivpati wife Munna Rathor, Shmam Rani wife Krishna Kant Gupta and Shyamvati wife Vijay Kumar were paid despite being ineligible.

Errors found here too
Earlier, in the investigation of Amar Ujala, two fake beneficiaries were revealed in Chitrakoot, from which recovery was made later. FIR was also lodged. However, apart from these two, no other beneficiary was verified. In Balrampur also, the investigation of the big scam has not been completed yet. The District Magistrate of Gorakhpur has warned the Deputy District Magistrate of Gola Tehsil to stop such irregularities on receiving fake applications. However, many workers including the District Social Welfare Officer have been suspended after finding disturbances in Kanpur.

Will get the matter investigated. If these cases are found to be fake even in the investigation conducted by our level, then rest assured that the culprits will get the harshest punishment as per rules.
