List of Schemes under MP Mukhyamantri Jan Kalyan (Sambal) Yojana at Portal

In order to tackle several issues at once, governments need to deploy something broader than merely focusing on one issue at a time. Usually, governments are held for a specific period of time, and there happens to be no time to take matters one at a time. This one-cure-treats-all strategy has proven to be useful time and again, and while it may not entirely drive away poverty, malnutrition or caste inequality at once, it will at least push efforts in a progressive direction. 

The Madhya Pradesh government has launched a similar strategy through the implementation of the Mukhyamantri Jan Kalyan yojana – an umbrella scheme that includes various schemes for the betterment of the people. 

About the Mukhyamantri Jan Kalyan (Sambal) scheme

On May 5th, 2020, the Madhya Pradesh government transferred ₹41.33 crores in the bank account of 1900 beneficiaries to mark the launch of the scheme. The Sambal scheme, as the yojana is also known, is not only a scheme, but is said to be the beacon of hope for the poor children in the state, a support platform for the poor, and scope of empowerment for women in the state. 

The prime objective of the scheme is to offer financial assistance to the poor and to grant them better access to justice and services that aid their redemption from the vicious cycles of poverty.

Summing it up

With such a broad scheme in effect, people now have a chance to uplift their conditions and lead a dignified life in the long run. The state government, through the implementation of the scheme, ensures that nobody gets left behind – that every individual and family, no matter from what walk of life, gets to benefit from the schemes in place, and push themselves above the poverty line.

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.
