‘Flour-spice mills’ scheme for upliftment of women living below poverty line by Yogi Govt
Soon after the landslide victory in Uttar Pradesh, the Yogi government is seen into action. The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh, in its second term, will focus on the upliftment of women living below the poverty line in the next five years.
The government has finalized the draft of the ‘flour-spice mills’ scheme.
The Yogi government has introduced the Atta-Masala Mill Scheme, under which women will be given the grant to set up a flour and spice mill unit. Along with giving them employment opportunities, the government will also ensure to make them strong to take care of their families.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which is going to form the government for the second consecutive time in Uttar Pradesh, is going to focus on employment soon after the swearing-in.
Under the scheme of the government, as many as 125 women from each district of 18 divisional headquarters of the state will be benefited. A total of 2,250 women will be able to establish their flour-masala mill unit under the scheme.
The Uttar Pradesh government will give an amount of Rs.20,000 to each woman for setting up the unit. In this, Rs.10,000 will be given as a grant and the remaining amount will be given as an interest-free loan from special central assistance.
Starting this scheme as a pilot project from two districts, 17 women beneficiaries have also been selected. In the rest of the districts, preparations for connecting women to the scheme will be started more rapidly.
After Yogi Adityanath came to power in 2017, sincere efforts were made by his government to make women living below the poverty line self-reliant and employed and to establish their planetary industries. Yogi Adityanath’s return to power and after the formation of the new government, these efforts will be implemented more rapidly in the villages.
Immediately after the formation of the government, the Scheduled Castes Finance and Development Corporation will start extending the benefits of this scheme to women of the state.
