In terms of Memo. No. 3583/PN/P/II/3F-9/2006 dated of Joint Secretary, P&RD Department, the total projected figure of beneficiaries under IGNOAPS, IGNWPS & IGNDPS in Urban West Bengal has been assessed at 5.60 lakh under revised eligibility criteria of National Social Assistance Programme (NSAP). At present, total number of beneficiaries under these three components as on is 4.85 Lakh In the meantime, complaints are being received from different corners that in certain cases the BPL ID of an identified BPL household is being used by a non- BPL person for getting him/her enrolled as a NSAP beneficiary. Application on age tampering in the Urban Legacy Database has also been received, where an under-aged person is being shown to be a beneficiary. Names of dead beneficiaries, migrated beneficiaries and those getting pension from other schemes, still exist in the database despite all out effort to weed out the ineligible beneficiaries.
In order to prepare an error free comprehensive beneficiary list of NSAP Scheme Urban Legacy Data of all the eligible beneficiaries as per revised eligibility criteria with respect to , the following steps are required to be taken by the ULB :- Commissioner/ Joint Municipal Commissioner/Secretary in case of Corporation and Executive Officer / Finance Officer (in absence of Executive Officer) and Office Superintendent/ Head Clerk (in absence of Executive officer & Finance Officer) in case of Municipality/N.A.A will act as the Nodal Officer for the entire verification process. Officer/(s) to be nominated by the NODAL OFFICER will physically verify all the existing beneficiary of the approved beneficiary list as on as well as newly identified beneficiaries. Documents like EPIC Card/Birth Certificate / School Leaving Certificate/Horoscope/ AADHAAR Number/ Ration Card Number should be checked at the time of such verification. The Officer/(s) will identify those beneficiaries who have died / migrated and note the date of death/migration and verify supporting documents, as available. The Officer/(s) will also be required to verify whether any existing beneficiary is receiving pension under any other pension scheme of Govt. of West Bengal.
During field verification, special care to be taken to identify widow/ disability status of IGNOAPS beneficiaries within the age group years. Lack of this particular information is likely to deprive a genuine beneficiary of their benefit because the amount of widow and disability pension has been increased. To facilitate the verification process, a standard format has been designed, Information as required in FORMAT-A can also be generated from the Urban Legacy Database for verification. A list of probable duplicate names, if any, is to be prepared from Urban Legacy Data FORMAT-B. A reasoned order has to be passed by the concerned Officer before deleting any such name from the list after giving due opportunity of being heard to the concerned person. All such deletions are to be given effect in the Urban Legacy Data.
These information can be gathered from legacy data
On the basis of report received in Format A & B, the Commissioner/Executive Officer shall then take all necessary steps for submission of Legacy Database in Soft Copy with a copy of supporting resolution of BOC, Universal Coverage Certificate latest by 27th October,2014 positively to SUDA for onward transmission to P&RD Deptt After field verification, necessary correction and inclusion of newly identified beneficiaries as on for all the three Pension Schemes under NSAP needs to incorporated strictly using the Software in MS-EXCEL (Template designed by Govt. of India)
