The Congress government has estimated that the implementation of these schemes may cost about ₹50,000 crore every year.
Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah on Friday announced the roll-out of five guarantees promised by the Congress party before the assembly elections. The chief minister said the cabinet discussed all guarantees thoroughly and decided to implement them in the present financial year “without any discrimination of caste or religion.”
The five guarantees promised are 200 units of free power to all households (Gruha Jyoti), ₹2,000 monthly assistance to the woman head of every family (Gruha Lakshmi), 10 kg of rice free to every member of a BPL household (Anna Bhagya), ₹3,000 every month for unemployed graduate youth and ₹1,500 for unemployed diploma holders (both in the age group of 18-25) for two years (Yuva Nidhi), and free travel for women in public transport buses (Shakti).
For the Gruha Lakshmi scheme, the beneficiaries will have to submit their Aadhaar details and bank account numbers online. The applications for the scheme should be submitted from June 15 to July 15. The amount will be deposited in the account of the woman on August 15.
The Gruha Shakti scheme will be launched on June 11 under which all women can avail free travel in all government-run buses in the state, except AC buses and non-AC sleeper buses.
Under the Yuva Nidhi scheme, ₹3,000 will be disbursed every month for two years to those who completed graduation in 2022-23 and ₹1,500 per month to unemployed diploma holders.
