Disability Pension Scheme – Bihar
What does Bihar offer as monthly pension for people with disabilities? For starters, the state government website does not offer any clear information. The important thing to keep in mind is that the Bihar State Disability Pension Scheme covers only those disabled people who are not given any benefits under the Indira Gandhi National Disability Pension Scheme (IGNDPS).
While the state government website does not give a clear idea of the amount, information from other sources says the monthly pension is Rs 300.

- No minimum or maximum age limit specified for getting the benefits of the scheme.
