“We are celebrating this year as 'Antyodaya Utthan Varsh' and for this, the ‘Mukhyamantri Antyodaya Parivar Utthan' scheme has been started. Under this, the poorest families will be identified and their annual income will be increased to at least Rs 1.80 lakh”, said Sh. Manohar Lal.

For this, Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) of all families is being made. With this single document, the benefits of all the schemes and services are now available to the eligible persons while sitting at home. Most of the schemes and services are now linked to the PPP portal.

“This year, benefits of most of the government services will start online through PPP. Now the birth and death data will also be auto-updated. Data on Education, Skill and Unemployment has also been uploaded on this portal. We are also going to do the work of making ration cards through PPP. Initially, this scheme has been started in district Sirsa and Kurukshetra on pilot basis,” said Sh. Manohar Lal.

Under this new Ration card system, the colour category of ration cards will also change automatically when there is a change in the income of the beneficiary. If a person attains the prescribed age for old age pension, then he will not have to make rounds of government offices to get his pension, as his pension will start automatically through PPP, said the Chief Minister.

Poor families can get themselves treated in 631 empanelled hospitals. An amount of Rs. 434 crore has been reimbursed for this. Free tests and medicines are being given to the poor even in government hospitals, he added.

Not only this, free coaching is being provided to them to prepare for various competitive and entrance exams. Besides this, many scholarships are also being given.

Under the Post Matric Scholarship, scholarships ranging from Rs 230 to Rs 1200 per month are provided to Scheduled Caste students studying in post-matriculation classes. In addition, all non-refundable fees are reimbursed.

The State Government is continuously working to raise the standard of living of the last person standing in the row. Not only this, every penny from the government's treasury is being transferred to the poor by using e-governance, said Sh. Manohar Lal.

Historic moment for the city of Danveer Karna: Sanjay Bhatia

Karnal MP, Sh. Sanjay Bhatia said that organizing a state-level function to celebrate the birth anniversary of Maharishi Kashyap Jayanti in Karnal is a historic moment for the city of Danveer Karna.

“We are all the children of Maharishi Kashyap. Those who indulge in politics have divided us in the name of religion, caste, and creed. We were divided when Babur, who had invaded the country with his army of 12,000 soldiers. The British had come as merchants but ruled here,” he said.

Sh. Sanjay Bhatia said that Martyrs and Gurus fought and made the supreme sacrifices of their lives to get freedom. He said that in the coming years too, this grand programme being organized today would be celebrated in the same way.
