Panaji, Jan 4 (IBNS) As promised by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the 2012 assembly election manifesto, the Goa government on Friday implemented its much touted scheme 'Griha Aadhar' although it comes three months after its launch.
The first batch of 7707 women beneficiaries in six talukas were given sanction letters under the scheme that provides Rs 1000 monthly support to housewives to fight inflation.
Minister for Women and Child Development Dilip Parulekar told reporters that the scheme covers women whose gross family income is less than Rs 3 lakh.
"Married women, divorcees and widows will benefit the scheme. They should not be a beneficiary of other government schemes," he said.
More than 12,000 applications have been scrutinized out of total 28,450 applications received by the implementing agency - state women and child welfare department, so far.
The government has earmarked Rs 150 crore for the scheme for the ongoing fiscal year.
