Bihar Pravasi Majdur Sahayata Yojana

The lockdown has slowed down the lives of many across the nation to dangerous levels. However, the ones who have suffered the most severe blow of this lockdown happen to be the migrant labourers who could find no way to either go home or garner sustenance in the state they were stuck in.

To aid them in such times, the government started the Bihar Pravasi Majdur Sahayata scheme.

Objective of the scheme

Labourers stuck across various parts of India found it really difficult to get through their days without transport facilities or money to get some food for themselves. The government, therefore, launched the scheme to assist such labourers with financial assistance of ₹1000.

Under this scheme, the amount would be directly transferred to the applicant’s bank account.

Benefits of Bihar Pravasi Majdur Sahayata Yojana:

  • The benefits of the scheme would be provided to labourers stuck outside the state of Bihar due to the lockdown.
  • Under the scheme, financial assistance of ₹1000 would be provided to enable the labourers to get by their days and also fend for transport if possible.
  • The scheme is only applicable for residents of Bihar who are stuck outside their state.
  • The scheme promises to offer financial aid directly into their bank accounts so the applicants would not have to step out to the banks and get to exercise the stay-at-home protocol with the lockdown ensues.

In conclusion

The government’s effort to provide momentary respite to the migrant labourer during these trying times is proof that no matter what, the nation unites to each other’s aid. Trying times may not last but people to unite and help each other always do.

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.
