HYDERABAD: With complaints pouring in on irregularities allegedly taking place in the state government’s scheme - Shaadi Mubarak, the Anti Corruption Bureau officials on Saturday  verified the records of beneficiaries. 

A special team of ACB conducted surprise checks in Nizamabad, Ranga Reddy, Warangal, Nalgonda and Hyderabad districts and verified records of beneficiaries. The agency received complaints regarding a beneficiary who already obtained the amount under the scheme but applied again while some persons had already received the money for the second time.

State government had announced the Shaadi Mubarak scheme for Muslim girls. Under this, a one-time financial assistance of Rs 51,000 would be provided to the bride’s family at time of marriage to meet the expenses.
