Jagan disburses Rs. 137 cr to over 3L beneficiaries left out of schemes

Tadepalli: Ensuring that no eligible person is left out under any government announced schemes, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy on Tuesday disbursed Rs. 137 crores to 3,39,096 beneficiaries who were left out at the camp office in Tadepalli.

The government will also be distributing 2,99,085 new pension cards under YSR Pension Kanuka with an additional expenditure of Rs. 935 crores per annum. As many as 7,051 rice cards have been sanctioned afresh taking the total number of rice cards to 1.45 crores. Nearly 3,035 new YSR Aarogyasri cards are sanctioned taking the total cards to 1.41 crores.

Speaking to some of the beneficiaries and district collectors across the state through video conference, the Chief Minister said, "The government has ensured credibility without any prejudice and injustice, be it in the distribution of ration cards, pension cards, or any other welfare-related schemes. When compared to the previous government, the number of beneficiaries through these welfare schemes has only increased by lakhs. Without any traces of corruption or mediators, we have ensured that the money disbursement is directly sent to the accounts of the beneficiaries."

Jagan added that the Andhra Pradesh government is the only government that is implementing schemes in a 100% saturation mode ensuring that all eligible beneficiaries get benefits. In a first-of-its-kind initiative, the list of all the beneficiaries is displayed in the village/ward secretariats for social audits and the entire process is done in a transparent manner with no discrimination on the basis of caste, community, religion, or party, the CM added.

If found eligible after verification, they are paid immediately after June for all the welfare schemes implemented between December and May. For all the schemes implemented between June and November, the left-outs are being paid in December, he said.
