Welfare Scheme for Older Women

Under the Scheme of Integrated Programme for Older Persons implemented by the
Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, financial assistance is also
provided to NGOs for running and maintenance of Multi Facility Care Centres for
Older Widowed Women.

The Ministry of Women and Child Development is implementing two shelter based
schemes namely “Swadhar” and “Short Stay Homes” under which financial assistance
is provided to the implementing agencies for providing support services to women
in difficult circumstances.

The Ministry of Rural Development is implementing Indira Gandhi National Widow
Pension Scheme (IGNWPS) and Indira Gandhi National Old Age Pension Scheme (IGNOAPS).
Under IGNWPS, Central assistance is given towards pension @ Rs.200/- per month
to widows below the poverty line in the age group of 40-64. Other women below
the poverty line of 65 years and above are covered under IGNOAPS wherein Central
assistance is given towards pension @ Rs.200/- per month, which is meant to be
supplemented by at least an equal contribution by the States.
