Tuesday, 11 June 2024 | PNS | Chandigarh

After presenting possession letters of 100-100 square yards plots to intended beneficiaries under Mahatma Gandhi Gramin Basti Yojana, Haryana Chief Minister Nayab Singh Saini on Monday said that over the last decade, both the Central and State governments have effectively implemented the spirit of Antyodaya. “Our double-engine government is truly pro-poor, continuously striving to strengthen and empower the underprivileged,” he added.

The Chief Minister was speaking at the state-level function organized for distribution of possession letters of 100-100 square yards plots to the eligible beneficiaries under Mahatma Gandhi Gramin Basti Yojana in Sonipat district.

In addition to Sonipat, similar such events were organized at 10 other locations - Bhiwani, Charkhi Dadri, Palwal, Gurugram, Hisar, Jind, Yamunanagar, Mahendragarh, Jhajjar, and Sirsa – in the State where Haryana Government Ministers and MLAs distributed plot possession letters to the beneficiaries. More than 7,500 people received plot possession letters during the event.

The Chief Minister further said that for villages lacking available land for plots, beneficiaries will receive financial assistance of Rs 1 lakh each to purchase plots. Besides this, the government has made a plan to provide plots to other poor beneficiaries as well and directions have been given to the officers to develop a portal. Such families can register themselves on this portal, he added.

Saini said that during the election period, he directed officers to rectify the situation, ensuring beneficiaries received possession letters promptly. This task has now been successfully accomplished.

The Chief Minister said that the government has devised a plan to offer shelter to BPL families across 14 cities through the Mukhyamantri Shahri Awas Yojana. Under this scheme, 15000 plots will be provided. The list of beneficiaries has been meticulously verified and finalized. Implementation of this scheme is imminent and will commence shortly.

Saini highlighted the BR Ambedkar Awas Renovation Scheme, which offers financial aid of Rs. 80,000 for house repairs in the state. He said that Rs. 370 crore has been disbursed among 66,000 beneficiaries under this scheme. Additionally, he emphasized Prime Minister Narendra Modi's efforts to empower the economically and socially disadvantaged through the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Rural and Urban). Over the past decade, the double-engine government has allocated Rs. 522 crore to this cause. From 67,649 applications, 14,939 impoverished individuals have received keys to their new homes. Apart from this, 15,356 new houses are ready to be built, which will be handed over to the eligible people in two months.

Similarly, 29440 applications were received under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Gramin, out of which Rs 376 crore was spent on the construction of 26318 houses. Rs 32 crore was spent on the repair of 2138 old houses.

Saini said that recognizing the significance of Chaupals for various community gatherings, including marriages and ceremonies, the Haryana government has allocated a budget of Rs 100 crore for repairing Chaupals belonging to the SC and BC categories. Once these Chaupals are renovated, people will have improved facilities for organizing events.

He further said a new scheme called the Dayalu Yojana has been started, aimed at assisting the poor. Under this scheme, families of deceased earning members receive financial aid of Rs 5 lakh. To date, Rs 370 crore has been distributed to 8000 families across the state. Additionally, through the Nirogi Haryana Yojana, free health check-ups have been provided to 2.71 crore individuals. He said that people are facing difficulties in document corrections like Aadhar cards, ration cards, Parivaar Pahchan Patra, to solve this issue, a new initiative called 'Samadhan Shivir' has been initiated. A ‘Samadhan Prakosth’ has been established within the Chief Secretary's office to address these issues. Deputy Commissioners and Sub-Divisional Magistrates (SDM) will address citizen grievances daily from 9 am to 11 am during working days. Their reports will be submitted to the Chief Secretary's office for monitoring by the Chief Minister himself, ensuring swift resolution of public concerns.
