An official spokesperson said that the decision was taken by the State Administrative Council (SAC) which met under the chairmanship of Governor Satya Pal Malik on Saturday.
The move is aimed at ensuring transparency and avoid delays in disbursement of pension to eligible old-aged, widows and physically challenged persons.
The SAC directed Deputy Commissioners (DC) will undertake rigorous re-scrutinisation of all the pending pension cases in their respective districts.
The spokesperson said that all eligible cases duly supported by Aadhaar numbers will be forwarded by the DCs to the respective directorates of social welfare by the end of this month.
The SAC also directed the Social Welfare Department to compile, in addition, a list of all widows below 40 years of age who are not covered under the ongoing schemes.
