Raipur: The Chhattisgarh government has launched the ‘Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Bhumihin Majdur Nyay Yojana’ (RGGBMNY) with the provision of Rs 200 crores benefiting 12 lakh landless families.
CM Bhupesh Baghel had introduced the scheme to the state legislature on July 28. The scheme aims to support rural landless labourers with minimum wages so that they can access basic amenities. The beneficiaries are expected to receive their benefits before the end of this financial year, on March 31, 2022.
Annually, a sum of Rs 6,000 would be granted to the families. Additionally, the state administration has also set up a mechanism that would resolve issues related to the transfer in just 15 days.
Baghel said,” We have launched a scheme that is a first of its kind focused on delivering economic justice, for the rural landless labourers of Chhattisgarh. Over 12 lakh households will benefit from this scheme. We hope to be able to ensure for them true justice, and true freedom.”
RGGBMNY Scheme would support labours that do not own even a small piece of land, yet are dependent on agricultural labour for their income.
Apart from landless labourers, the scheme also aims to provide support to barbers, blacksmiths, dhobis (washermen and washerwomen) and priests across Chhattisgarh.
The beneficiaries of the ‘Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Bhumihin Majdur Nyay Yojana’ can register themselves on the dedicated portal ‘rggbkmny.cg.nic.in’ from September 1,2021to November 30, 2021.
