Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will credit Rs.216.34 crore directly into the accounts of 2,62,169 leftover beneficiaries – the welfare benefits disbursed between December 2022 and July 2023 — with the click of a button on Thursday. The officials explained that the Jagan government was firmly determined to see that every eligible person gets welfare benefits. It is committed to see that no eligible person is left out of welfare benefits, hence giving another opportunity to the eligible people who missed out for any reason, twice a year.
The officials further explained that the Jagan government was providing another opportunity to those who are eligible, but couldn’t avail of welfare scheme benefits for some reason, under which they need to apply in Village/Ward Secretariats. Their applications will be verified and if found eligible, the benefit will be provided once in six months, for the schemes implemented during that period.
The officials pointed out that like nowhere else in the country, the list of all beneficiaries is displayed in Village and Wards Secretariats in a transparent manner for social audit. AP is the only government that is implementing the welfare schemes in a 100 per cent saturation mode to all eligible persons without any discrimination of caste, community, religion or party affiliation. Including the benefit being provided today, a total benefit of Rs.1,647 Crores has been provided to the eligible leftover beneficiaries in four terms, since the inception of the scheme (December 2021).
Through “Jagananna Suraksha”, besides providing 94,62,184 necessary certificates to all the eligible, the Jagan government is now providing benefits to 12,405 new beneficiaries who were found eligible. Further, the government is providing benefits to 1,630 newly found eligible people, after verifying the applications received through “Jaganannaku Chebudham”.
The government is also providing fresh pensions to 1,49,875 people, 4,327 new Aarogyasri cards, 2,312 new rice cards and house site pattas to an additional 12,069 people, who couldn’t avail of them from December 2022 to July 2023.
