Upliftment of poor families under Mission Antyodaya

Manohar Lal said that while following the principles of ‘Antyodaya’, the present State Government is financially empowering the poorest of the poor families. The State Government is committed for the Social, Educational and Economic Upliftment of all sections.

“We are celebrating this year as ‘Antyodaya Utthan Varsh’ and for this, the ‘Mukhyamantri Antyodaya Parivar Utthan’ scheme has been started. Under this, the poorest families will be identified and their annual income will be increased to at least Rs 1.80 lakh”, said  Manohar Lal.

The Chief Minister said that the State Government aims to provide benefits of all government services and schemes to the citizens while sitting at home and they do not have to make rounds of offices. For this, Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) of all families is being made. With this single document, the benefits of all the schemes and services are now available to the eligible persons while sitting at home. Most of the schemes and services are now linked to the PPP portal.

“This year, benefits of most of the government services will start online through PPP. Now the birth and death data will also be auto-updated.
