One may apply for this yojana by visiting the official website of the Social Welfare Department (SWD). The Viklang Pension Yojana is essential for the individual with a disability who has no source of income to meet the financial requirement. Hence, people with disability must apply for this scheme.
A person is required to fulfill the following criteria in order to apply for the pension yojana.

However, an individual satisfying the 40 percent disability but receiving any other pension is not eligible to apply for the Viklang Pension Yojana. In addition, if the disabled person is an owner of a three or four-wheeler, he is not entitled to get benefits from this pension yojana. Furthermore, a person working in the government sector cannot be covered under the Viklang Pension Yojana.
An applicant must have the following documents in order to apply for pension yojana.
The beneficiary is required to produce his disability certificate while applying for the Divyang Pension Yojana. The certificate must be issued by the physician or health center. However, a private practitioner may also give a certificate of disability. Nevertheless, if the person is suffering from mental depression, a hearing impaired disability, or any other intangible disability, he needs to get the certificate issued by Ram Manohar Lohia Joint Hospital situated in Lucknow. Certificates issued from other hospitals in case of intangible disability will not be accepted.

In order to substantiate his age, the individual may furnish or provide the birth certificate or the certificate he received after passing class 10th.
The applicant can submit the passbook of any bank.

Upon completing personal details, the applicant may move toward bank details, which include the name of the bank and the branch, account number, and IFSC code.
