Mahasamruddhi Mahila Sashaktikaran Scheme 2021 for Women Empowerment in Maharashtra

In the wake of women’s day celebrations, the Maharashtra government has planned to make the occasion all the more memorable – by launching a scheme that promises to work towards women’s empowerment. The Mahasamruddhi scheme for 2021 is going to be a major step towards empowering women in rural parts of one of the largest states of the country.

The state government intends to run this scheme on the 8th of March, 2021.

About the Mahasamruddhi Mahila Sashaktikaran Scheme 2021

In order to empower women in rural Maharashtra, the state government has announced the Mahasamruddhi scheme which will work towards offering rural women a chance to harness their confidence and put it to use to gain financial independence. The state government will promote the listing of names of wives alongside their husbands on the 7/12 extract.

The Saat Baara Utara in Maharashtra basically is an agricultural land record of an individual or family which is registered with the government’s revenue department.

The inclusion of wives names on house property documents will also be an agenda pushed forth by the Mahasamruddhi Mahila Sashaktikaran scheme 2021.

Salient features of the scheme

Here are some of the important features of the scheme:

  1. Under the Mahasamruddhi scheme, self-help groups will organise exhibitions to display rural women’s work and encourage them towards greater participation across several fields.
  2. Members of women cells at the village level and the state rural livelihood mission will also be involved.
  3. The Mahasamriddhi Mahila scheme will commence on International Women’s day.
  4. The State government will also provide women SHGs with avenues to sustainable markets and effective branding tools so as to help women promote their products better and reach out to better markets out there.
  5. Food products produced by the SHGs will be linked to robust market chains which also includes government offices and canteens, malls and even private outlets so that women are enabled to earn higher revenue through their efforts, which will not only help their business but also their personal finances enough to inch towards financial freedom.
  6. The Mahasamruddhi scheme will also conduct Skill development workshops.
  7. There will also be special women marts set up and the beneficiaries will be provided with financial support, which also includes low-interest loans.
  8. The Scheme will also offer free legal service to women so as to be able to start off with the right advice and be protected against corruption and exploitation of any sort.

Summing it up

Women have, for the longest time, stayed in the shadows, suppressing skills which the world needed. Today, with feminism being the need of the hour, state governments all across the nation realise the importance of women empowerment and how it is all the more essential in the 21st century.

With schemes like this, women now have a chance to outshine and work towards personal finances, which empowers them enough to make their own decisions, run their own businesses, and be more than a liability to their families; they get to be equal contributors to the state’s and nation’s overall success.

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.
