Ranchi, October 6: To mark the completion of three years of the JMM-led Jharkhand government this December, an outreach programme aimed at taking welfare schemes to the doorstep of beneficiaries will be re-launched next week.
The programme, ‘Aapke Adhikar, Aapki Sarkar, Aapke Dwar’ (your rights, your government, at your door) will be launched in two phases – from October 12 to October 22 and from November 1 to November 14, 2022, an official statement said.
Last year Chief Minister Hemant Soren launched the programme on Statehood Day on November 15 and the government started holding camps for beneficiaries at the panchayat level from the next day.
The initiative aims at processing applications related to welfare schemes on the spot so that villagers start receiving benefits at the earliest.
In 2021, out of a total of 35.95 applications, 35.56 lakh applications were processed, the statement said.
By organising camps at the panchayat level, the public welfare schemes of the state government will be disseminated among the people and maximum benefits of the schemes will be given to the general public in the camp itself, the statement said.
The idea behind the scheme is to ensure that no eligible person is deprived of the benefits.
Under the programme, applications will be received under schemes like Jharkhand State Food Security Scheme for green ration cards, Savitribai Phule Kishori Samridhi Yojana, Chief Minister’s Livestock Development Scheme, Sarvajan Pension Yojana, Kisan Credit Card (KCC) and other schemes.
Through this event, camps will be organized at the Panchayat level under the government ‘Aapki Adhikar, Aapki Sarkar Aapke Dwar’ program.
Public welfare schemes of the state government will be placed among the villagers. Efforts will be made to solve the problems of the common people from the camp itself. The government is focusing on those panchayats where camps could not be organized last year.
Efforts will also be made to reach the information about the schemes given to the villagers for their benefit through this program.
In this program, people will also be able to complain about which scheme they are not getting the benefit of.
