The Uttar Pradesh State government has some respite for its residents in these trying times. The Uttar Pradesh Free Electricity Connection Yojana is being spearheaded by the state officials and promises to provide electricity in every household in Uttar Pradesh soon.
What is more, is the fact that this connection would be installed for free and this mission is led by the CM of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath.
The objective of the mission
The main objective is to provide households with electricity so as to powerhouses enough to use their appliances and live a dignified standard of living. Several households in UP still do not have electricity connections because many simply could not afford it. Now, the UP state government intends to provide these connections for free, making it possible for poorer citizens also to get an electric connection.
Benefits of the scheme
The scheme is primarily aimed to benefit those from the poorer segments of society. According to the scheme, BPL and APL families will be given not only the connection but even the electricity for free. Free electricity will be provided on the basis of caste and tribe and their annual income.
Eligibility criteria for free electricity in UP
- The applicant must be a resident of UP
- In order to get free electricity, the applicant must belong to the APL or the BPL criteria
- The applicant should not be an income taxpayer.
- The applicant cannot be employed by the government of India
Things can get really difficult for those who cannot afford electricity. It is hard to imagine a life without electricity, especially in this day and age. With this scheme, the UP government is taking strides towards a brighter future for its residents.
