Bihar Badh Rahat Yojana

Bihar has faced the wrath of nature for quite a while now and it has, therefore, become extremely important for the Government to turn its attention towards a disaster-affected Bihar and provide some relief.

In the light of this knowledge, the Government of India has initiated the Bihar Badh Rahat Yojana – a Flood relief scheme for the citizens of Bihar.

Objective of the scheme

  • Offering assistance to people – both financial and otherwise
  • Offering crop assistance to those households who have faced crop damage and animal loss
  • Offering housing solutions to those who have lost their kutcha or pucca houses to the floods

What does the scheme offer?

Bihar Badh Rahat Yojana is a scheme that promises to offer relief to the flood affected families of Bihar both in cash and kind. The government of Bihar has announced that ₹6000 will be provided to the flood affected families of Bihar under the Bihar Badh Rahat Yojana.

Even those families who have lost their kutcha or pucca houses will also be entitled to such a financial relief.

Which are the regions getting relief from the Government of Bihar?

Ideally, areas that are most affected by the floods will receive immediate attention and relief from the Bihar government. These districts are Sitamarhi, Shivhar, Supaul, Kishanganj, Darbhanga, Muzaffarpur, Gopalganj, Khagaria, and East & West Champaran.

These are areas that have faced the most damage and more than 6.36 lakh people who live here are affected by the floods.

How will the aid be provided?

Those affected by the floods will have the financial relief offered to them directly through their bank account through direct benefit transfer by the State government.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
