What is it?

  • It was launched by the Haryana Government in 2015.
  • The primary objective of PPP is to create authentic, verified, and reliable data of all families in Haryana.
  • PPP identifies each and every family in Haryana and keeps the basic data of the family, provided with the consent of the family, in a digital format.
  • Under the scheme, a unique identity card — called Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) is launched — through which the state government aims to monitor all the families living across the state.
  • Under PPP, each family is considered a single unit.
  • Each family will be provided an eight-digit Family ID.
  • The Family ID will be linked to the Birth, Death, and Marriage records to ensure automatic updating of the family data as and when such life events happen.
  • A family has to register itself on the PPP portal to avail the benefits of social-security schemes of the state government.
  • Benefits —
      • PPP scheme makes citizens able to take benefits of government schemes and services by sitting at home through online medium.
      • It also brings transparency to the system and eliminates middlemen so as to stop ineligible people from taking advantage of any scheme.
