In the wake of Independence Day, as we celebrate the unity of our country, it is important to know that the diversity we hold does not divide us, but unites us, enriches us, makes us unique. The Himachal Pradesh government launched the Mukhyamantri Alpsankhyak Kalyan Yojana 2021 – a scheme that aims to celebrate the diversity in the state and offer avenues.

Under the implementation of the scheme, the state government will offer financial assistance for the marriage of Muslim girls, medical treatment to poor Muslim families and also provide social security pension to the old, widows, and disabled people of Minority communities.

How to apply for the Mukhyamantri Alpsankhyak Kalyan Yojana?

In order to apply for the scheme, one would have to wait a while, as the state government is working on a system that ensures smooth implementation of the scheme. The funding for the welfare of Muslims in the state comes from the Waqf Board, established for the welfare of the Muslim community on the whole.

The final take on the implementation of the scheme is yet pending, and hence the mechanism for applying for the scheme is in its developmental stages currently.

Wrapping it up

Minority communities have always felt marginalised and have been drawing the short end of the straw for decades now. With the implementation of the Mukhyamantri Alpsankhyak Kalyan scheme, Muslims in Himachal Pradesh now have access to avenues they never had before. Through this scheme, marriages, social security and medical facilities for Muslims will be made available, so that they do not feel left out of developmental efforts carried out all over the country.

For decades now, there have been efforts to bring about the welfare of the Muslim community, and this scheme, like no other, offers multiple opportunities for minorities in the state. A big stride in welfare efforts, the Mukhyamantri Alpasankhyak yojana aims to create history by offering long term solutions to the people of Himachal.

Finally, development has to be holistic, where no minority or ethnicity is left behind. That is true democracy and the most accurate representation of secularism – the exact ideology our founding fathers built the nation on.

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.
