Raipur: As the registration process for ‘Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Bhumiheen Krishi Mazdoor Nyay Yojana’ commenced today, chief minister Bhupesh Baghel extended hearty congratulations to the agro-laborers in the state and requested them to register under the scheme to avail the benefits.

In his message to the public, Baghel said that under Chhattisgarh Government's initiative to ensure justice to the needy people in the state, a new chapter has been added in form of “Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Bhumiheen Krishi Mazdoor Nyay Yojana”. The registration for this Nyay Yojana is starting from today i.e. September 1st and it would go on till November 30, 2021. More than 10 lakh landless agricultural laborers will be benefitted under the scheme. For each family, a grant amount of Rs 6,000 per year will be deposited directly into their bank account.

“Our top leaders and MPs- Mrs. Sonia Gandhi and Mr. Rahul Gandhi have given us this mantra that money should be put in the pockets of poor families by all means so as to save them from the vicious cycle of debt in times of economic crisis. The way Chhattisgarh Government’s initiative to provide financial aid to the farmers has strengthened the market, in the same way, the financial help to be provided to the landless agricultural laborers under the aforementioned scheme will also become a medium to give impetus to the rural economy”, he said.

Baghel said that Chhattisgarh is the first state in the country, which has implemented such a scheme for landless agricultural laborers. “Through 'Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Bhumiheen Krishi Mazdoor Nyay Yojana', we will be able to help the neediest families of the state.
