Telangana CM Dalit Bandhu Scheme 2021 | TS Dalita Bandhu by Chief Minister KCR for Dalit Empowerment

With the turn of the century, oppressive traditions and practices are being demolished for the collective good, and this turns out to be the biggest win for humanity on the whole. Several oppressive beliefs and customs are being axed and the most important one in India that needs to be disposed of is the caste system and its negative impacts on the community of people called the Dalits.

For decades, intellectuals and learned citizens have schemed and worked hard to abolish the system for the welfare of the community but there always seems to be a roadblock in terms of the predisposition people hold towards the caste system.

However, in a definitive stand against the system and to usher in the winds of change, the Telangana government has launched the Dalit Bandhu scheme.

About the Telangana Dalit Bandhu scheme

Through the implementation of the scheme, the Telangana government intends to empower the Dalits in the society to break the vicious cycle of poverty and rise above to lead a dignified life in the long run.

Empowering the Dalits is an essential aspect of development, as it cannot be considered the development of a nation if a certain community of people are left behind in the shadows.

The Telangana government intends to roll out the scheme soon so as to benefit as many Dalit families in the state as possible.

Beneficiaries in the State-wide scheme

Through the scheme, several Dalit families in the state will be empowered. To give an estimate, the scheme intends to roll out its benefits in a staggered fashion for better efficacy.

MandalNumber of Dalit families
Huzurabad mandal5323
Kamalapur mandal4346
Veenavanka mandal3678
Jammikunta mandal4996
Illanthakunta mandal2586
Total20,969 families

All of these assembly segments will undergo thorough verification for the selection of beneficiaries under the Dalit Bandhu scheme.

Assistance amount offered under Dalit Bandhu Scheme

The scheme aims to offer a sum of ₹10 lakh given to the Dalits in cash under the implementation of the scheme. Along with that, the beneficiary along with the government’s participation will create a Safety fund.

In any case, the Dalit family falls into some kind of crisis and needs financial respite, the Safety fund will come into action and help out the family. The Safety fund shields the family from financial difficulties, which they tend to face quite often and this scheme will reassure them to lead better, more worry-free lives.

In Conclusion

Dalits have faced oppression, on several levels, for a really long time. For years, they have been denied basic rights of education and information just as a mere and ignorant continuation of a process that does not wish for the welfare of the Dalits.

Now, with this scheme coming to light, the Telangana government is shining the spotlight on an issue that has always been promised but never implemented. Through this scheme, the norms of equality will now be even more widespread.

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.
