Bhubaneswar:22/5/2 3: All beneficiaries of the Madhu Babu Pension Yojana (MBPY) of the Odisha Government will receive the money at disbursement centers on 15th of every month in the form of cash from June of 2023.
The government has written a letter in this regard to all Collectors and Commissioners of Municipal Corporatios.
The decision was taken as many elderly and physically challenged persons were finding it difficult to withdraw money from their bank accounts. This apart, some beneficiaries have not received pension due to technical glitch in the portal.
“You are kindly aware that pension was disbursed to about half the beneficiaries under MBPY in DBT mode in the month of May-2023. However, many old and disabled beneficiaries are facing difficulties in withdrawing/ collecting cash from their bank accounts. Some beneficiaries have also not received pension in time due to technical glitch in the portal,” the letter read.
“Keeping in view the above, the State Government has decided that all MBPY beneficiaries will receive pension in cash from June-2023 onwards. Accordingly, all beneficiaries under Madhu Babu Pension Yojana will be receiving cash on 15th of every month (Jana Seva Diwas) at disbursement places as before,” the letter said.
Older and disabled pensioners, who can’t move to disbursement places, will receive pension at their doorsteps, the letter added.
