Bihar Corona Sahayata App

The pandemic has hit the world pretty hard, and some of the most affected places happen to be those whose maximum population falls under the poverty bracket. One such place in India happens to be Bihar.

To mitigate the spread and effects of the pandemic on Bihar, the government of India has issued the online help app for the poor people of Bihar, called the Bihar Corona Sahayata App.

What does the app do?

The app helps people get in touch with authorities and seek monetary help. It is common knowledge that a lot of Bihar residents migrate to the other parts of the nation to earn their livelihood and are now stuck there due to the lockdown issued nationwide.

To tackle the consequences of the lockdown in Bihar, the Bihar government with the help of the Central Government has come up with the Corona Sahayata app which will help citizens to get a financial respite of ₹1,000 by registering on the app.

The app was released on the 5th of April 2020 and is being looked into and monitored closely by the Disaster Management Department and the Government of Bihar.

Beneficiaries mostly include residents of Bihar who are stuck outside Bihar and are out of means to make through this lockdown period.

What documents would one need to benefit from the app?

  • 1 Aadhar Card copy with a clear photo
  • Beneficiary’s bank account number and bank name details which is located in the State of Bihar
  • Photograph (selfie) of the Beneficiary.

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.
