Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, will introduce a social program on Sunday that will provide qualified women with a monthly help of Rs 1,000 months before the important Assembly elections.
At least 100,000 women from urban and rural areas around the state are scheduled to attend the event, which will take place at Jamboree Maidan in the state capital later in the day.
The administration hopes to reach one million women in the state with the introduction of the “Mukhyamantri Ladli Behna Plan,” for which the recently-presented budget included a provision of Rs 8,000 crore.
According to a government official, women who participate in this program will receive monthly assistance of Rs 1,000 with a few conditions, such as that they must not be income tax filers.
By completing a few forms, the government will introduce the program on Sunday, which also happens to be Chouhan’s birthday. Forms for prospective beneficiaries can be submitted from March 15 to April 30, officials said, following a break for the Holi festival.
A list of recipients will be released on May 1 and the final list will be available on May 31 following review.
The receivers will begin getting money in their accounts on June 10 and every month after that.
The state government provided Rs 1.02 lakh crore for women in the recently proposed Rs 3.14 lakh crore budget, an increase of 22% from the previous year.
According to the officials, the Ladli Behna Yojana is projected to assist women whose yearly household income is less than Rs 2.5 lakh.
There are 2,60,23,733 registered voters in Madhya Pradesh, and in at least 18 of the 230 Assembly districts, more women vote than men. The majority-tribal cities of Balaghat, Mandla, Dindori, Alirajpur, and Jhabua districts are among these.
According to statistics, 2.79 percent more women than men are now registered to vote, compared to 2.30 percent more men.
According to them, 7.07 lakh of the 13.39 lakh new voters is women.
