Uttar Pradesh Matrabhumi Yojana by Yogi Govt to rehabilitate 63 Bengali Hindu families who migrated in 1970s
On Wednesday, a proposal was cleared by the state cabinet to launch “Uttar Pradesh Matrabhumi Yojana”. Under this, the Yogi Adityanath government will rehabilitate Bengali Hindu families who migrated in the 1970s from East Pakistan (Bangladesh).
It also said that these families will be given an amount of Rs.1.2 lakh for the construction of the house. Through this Yojana, individuals can fund infrastructure development in their native region with the government bearing 40 percent of the cost.
The families will be settled in Bhaisaya village in Kanpur (Rural) over 121.41 hectares of land. According to a state government spokesman, each family will be given 2 acres of land for agricultural purposes and 200 square meters of land for housing on a lease rent of Rs.1 for a period of 30 years, renewable up to 90 years.
In another decision, the cabinet also approved the proposal regarding free distribution of iodized salt, pulses/ whole gram, edible oil (like mustard oil/ refined oil), and food grains to the Antyodaya and eligible household cardholders of the state.
The families were earlier settled in Hastinapur in Meerut and were working in the Madan Yarn Mill which closed down in 1984. Since then, the families have been seeking rehabilitation.
