Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday said that efforts are being made to double the income of farmers as well as workers in the state.
“For this, the registration of unorganized workers is going on in Haryana. Now, the registration of workers of Bhartiya Railway Mall Godam working in the state will also be started. After this, they will also be able to get the benefit of schemes related to the Central and State Government,” the Chief Minister said while addressing the Haryana State Labour Registration inaugural ceremony organized by the Bhartiya Railway Mall Godam Shramik Sangh in Panchkula.
Khattar said that the workers are the real builders of society. Haryana Government is registering construction workers, migrant labourers, shopkeepers, fishermen and all other unorganized workers. On completion of their registration, 22 schemes like health, children's education, employment, house and social security pension are being implemented for them, he said.
The Chief Minister also thanked the Prime Minister for launching the Shramev Jayate scheme.
He said that for the upliftment of the poor, Mukhyamantri Antyodaya Parivar Utthan Yojana has been started. So far, data of 3.5 lakh families have been received, whose income is less than Rs 1 lakh. Antyodaya Gramodaya Melas are being organized to reach out to such families so as to provide the benefits of more than 40 schemes of 18 departments of the government. In these Melas, work is being done to get loans from banks for self-employment and private jobs according to their qualifications, he added.
Khattar further said that the State Government is continuously working for the Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao campaign. There has been a significant improvement in the gender ratio of girls in Haryana. Earlier there were 853 girls per 1000 boys but now there are 913 girls. The government's goal is to take this figure to 950, he said.
The Chief Minister said that the State Government is working keeping in mind the interests of the workers. In future, if any person or representatives related to workers give suggestions, then they will also be implemented, he said.
