In Haryana, a total of 2374 cases are pending for assistance under the Mukhyamantri Vivah Shagun Yojana. In this, the maximum pending cases are from Yamuna Nagar and Kurukshetra districts. After these, the names of other districts including Nuh, Rewari, Narnaul and Jhajjar come. In addition, 588 applications have been rejected due to deficiencies. The applicants are troubled by the pending case for a long time and are making rounds of the social welfare officers.
Recently, departmental minister Dr. Banwari Lal had held a meeting in this regard and directed to speed up the review of the pending cases. According to the departmental report, so far 11920 people have been given the benefit of the scheme. In contrast, Yamuna Nagar has the highest number of pending marriage shagun cases at 793 and Kurukshetra at 547. Similarly, Nuh 294, Rewari 252, Narnaul 183, Jhajjar 150, Gurugram 49, Hisar 52, Panchukala 40 and 14 cases are pending in Ambala district. A total of 588 applications have been rejected due to deficiencies in the applications.

The important thing is that most of the cases are pending at the district level only. Cases are not pending at the headquarter level, cases are sent to treasury office for financial assistance at many places, there is also delay. Departmental officials say that the cases have been delayed due to flaws in the applications. It should be noted that it is mandatory for eligible persons to register their marriage to get financial assistance.
