KCR announces slew of welfare measures ahead of Telangana polls


Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, who has started working from the new secretariat, has announced several welfare measures as the state heads for elections later this year. The CM signed files pertaining to various schemes, including the expansion of the Dalita Bandhu scheme, regularisation of several government employees working on contract basis, irrigation schemes, increase in sanitation workers’ salaries, life insurance for toddy tappers, and providing land ownership documents to forest cultivators.

As part of the expansion of the Dalita Bandhu scheme, the CM signed a file to extend benefits to 1100 beneficiaries each in 118 Assembly constituencies, except Huzurabad where the scheme has already been implemented in full capacity. The CM also signed a file related to the distribution of Podu land titles for those doing cultivation in forest areas. From this month, the district-wise distribution programme will be undertaken, benefitting about 1.35 lakh beneficiaries with land titles for about 3.9 lakh acres.

Other files that the CM cleared are related to the regularisation of over 1,000 employees working on a contract basis in various government departments, expansion of the Palamuru Lift Irrigation scheme, and the distribution of KCR Nutrition Kits for pregnant women. As part of the nutrition kit scheme, 6.84 lakh pregnant women will benefit from the distribution of 13.08 lakh kits across the state, with each kit costing Rs 2,000.

In addition, the CM signed a file to enhance the wages of sanitation workers by Rs 1,000 per month, benefiting as many as 1,06,474 sanitation workers in the state. The CM also announced the ‘Geetha Karmikula Bhima’ scheme, providing insurance for toddy tappers in case of accidental death while collecting toddy from Palm trees in the fields. The CM instructed State Finance Minister T Harish Rao and Excise and Prohibition Minister V Srinivas Goud to prepare guidelines for the new insurance scheme.

The CM’s first review meeting in the newly constructed State Secretariat named after Dr BR Ambedkar Telangana was on the Palamuru Rangareddy Lift Scheme, discussing the progress in the works for drinking water supply meant for erstwhile undivided Mahabubnagar and Rangareddy districts. The CM issued orders to officials to supply water to Karivena reservoir by July and lift water up to Uddandapur by August this year. The Chief Minister also reviewed the progress in the works of Kalwakurthy, Nettempadu, Bhima, and Koil Sagar in the Palamuru district and ordered the officials to complete the remaining works by June this year.

Overall, the CM’s slew of plans and schemes is aimed at benefiting a wide range of people in the state, including Dalits, pregnant women, sanitation workers, and forest cultivators, among others.
