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. 

Eligibility Criteria for Viklang Pension Yojana

A person is required to fulfill the following criteria in order to apply for the pension yojana.
