jan aadhaar: Center Nod To Link Jan Aadhaar With Nrega Job Cards: Cm | Jaipur News

Jaipur: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Saturday that the Center had agreed in principle to link Jan Aadhaar with MGNREGA work cards.
“It will eliminate the problem of duplicating job cards,” he said. The Chief Minister said that the first branch of the Women’s Cooperative Bank would soon be opened in Jaipur.
An action plan has been prepared for the formation of 50,000 Self Help Groups (SHGs), which will benefit 5.50 lakh rural women, the chief minister said.
Gehlot expressed concern over the central government’s cut in NREGA’s budget. “The payment of Rs 3,000 crore by the center under the material head is still due. A letter will be written to the Indian government urging them to pay the outstanding amount,” he said.
“Financial assistance will be provided to these self-help groups through the working fund and the community investment fund. In all, Rs 600 crore will be arranged for bank loans. Also, the government plans to employ more than 50% women in various programs,” Gehlot said. “In a landmark initiative, 100% women have been employed in Bhilwara district. »
Gehlot said that a concrete plan is being prepared to develop infrastructure on a par with cities by preparing a master plan for villages. He said this while addressing the Rural Development Department review meeting at the CM residence on Saturday.
“Funds for Dang, Mewat and Magra Area Development Council have been increased to Rs 25 crore. Therefore, paving stone roads, drainage systems, gardens, libraries and other community facilities will be developed in the villages,” Gehlot said.
With the convergence of MGNREGA and other projects, the construction of “Mahatma Gandhi Vikas Path” will be initiated in these gram panchayats in the first phase where the population is over 3000.
He said 50,000 farm ponds, small ponds and reservoirs will be constructed at a cost of Rs 600 crore to make irrigation facilities available on about 10,000 hectares of land.
The chief minister said rural and urban haats in many districts would now be managed by the rural development department so that they can be used throughout the year. Under MGNREGA, work to create a mobile app for workers is underway, he said. “They can demand work through this application. This will guarantee the right of workers to employment,” he added.
