Amaravati: The TDP has decided to take the welfare measures deep into the people by launching the recently announced welfare schemes at specially-organised meetings in various parts of the state.
The TDP government had announced to provide the Rs 10,000 additional direct cash benefit to the women in three phases. The first instalment of Rs 1,500 under Pasupu – Kumkuma to self-help groups members will be distributed on February 1, the second instalment of Rs 3,500 on March 8 and Rs 5,000 during the third phase on April 5, according to officials of Chief Minister’s Office.
Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu would be addressing three meetings of SHG members on Friday to explain what the government had done during the last four-and-a- half years and what it would do next in its next term if voted to power. The first meeting will be held at Amaravati in the morning following by Kadapa in the afternoon and Visakhapatnam in the evening.
There are 93,81,118 SHG members in all categories in the state. The government has completed arrangements to distribute the checks for all the three instalments in one go on Friday.
The government feels that Pasupu Kumkuma for women members of the SHGs would result in motivating women in standing up for themselves and their families. Arrangements are being made for the direct benefit to be handed over to the 93,81,118 registered DWACRA members.
