The Rajasthan Chief Minister, Ashok Gehlot, has launched a series of relief camps aimed at tackling rising inflation across the state. The camps will run until June 20 and will be set up at over 2,000 locations throughout the state, including government offices and public spaces.
The primary objective of these camps is to educate and inform the public about their rights, schemes, and eligibility for various public welfare programs. CM Gehlot stated that the camps will provide complete information about 10 different public welfare schemes to empower people to access them.
To register for these programs, people will need to attend the relief camps, and the Rajasthan government’s Jan Aadhar card can be used for convenience, allowing registration at any district camp. Additionally, the camps will feature dedicated registration counters, and Chief Minister’s ‘Guarantee Cards’ will be distributed.
In another announcement, the Rajasthan government has set aside Rs 592 crore for various schemes aimed at supporting farmers. These include a grant of Rs 5,000 per family for purchasing manual agricultural machinery, benefiting around five lakh landless laborers. Additionally, the state government has allocated Rs 250 crore for providing agricultural machinery to one lakh farmers in the upcoming financial year, 2023-24.
These measures come as a response to rising inflation and will aim to provide relief to those most affected. The relief camps will provide vital information to those who need it, and the various schemes announced by the government will support farmers and laborers in the state.
