TS Spends Rs 40,000 Crore On Welfare Schemes Every Year : KCR:- Telangana State Chief Minister Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao who participated yesterday in the third anniversary celebrations of the Telangana State Formation Day at the Parade Grounds yesterday said that every year the State Government spends Rs 40,000 crore on welfare schemes.
KCR even presented awards to 52 eminent personalities, in recognition of the contributions that they made to their respective fields.
Mr. Rao, on the occasion announced the launch of two new schemes - a pension scheme for single women, which would offer them Rs 1000 every month, and the additional KCR Kit scheme for pregnant women and new mothers. He further stressed that the pregnant women were forced to work even in the advances stages, just to earn a living.
Have a look at the amount spent below on welfare schemes:
The Chief Minister further said, “To provide nutritious food and care to the new-born baby soon after delivery, we have launched the KCR kits. Moreover, the pregnant women will be given Rs 12,000 in the form of financial assistance. In case, if it is a baby girl, an additional amount of Rs 1,000 will be given.”
The idea is to encourage people to undergo deliveries at government hospitals, to reduce infant mortality rates, and to reduce the incidences of female foeticide.
The drinking water supplied by Misson Bhagiratha would reach all the households, by year end, added Mr. Rao. The biggest achievement of the TRS Government was overcoming the power shortage within six months, of coming into power. He further said, “To make the state a power-surplus state, we are setting up new power plants, in the coming days to come.” From the imminent rabi season, the farmers would be supplied free power round the clock.
Stating that caste-based professions would be encouraged, Mr Rao said that 84 lakh sheep would be distributed to the Yadav and Kurma communities.
