In his speech, Bhatti Vikaramarka said that this government is fully committed to public welfare, out of the six guarantees promised by us, we inaugurated two of them within 48 hours of assuming office.
We have made special arrangements for receipt of applications from December 28 to January 6, from eligible beneficiaries for implementation of six assurances, we have received an overwhelming number of 1.29 crore applications.
These applications have been digitized to facilitate identification of eligible beneficiaries and for resource mobilization.
Free RTC Bus Transport Facility under Mahalakshmi Scheme was launched by our government on December 9, 2023.
The women of the State are extremely happy about this facility. To ensure smooth implementation of the scheme, we have provided funds to TSRTC to the tune of Rs. 300 crores each month and we will continue to support the scheme.
Yet another public welfare scheme, Rajiv aarogyasri has been revamped and we have doubled the limit for medical treatment from Rs. 5 lakhs to Rs. 10 lakhs.
In addition, to ensure uninterrupted medical treatment to the needy, we have released pending dues under Arogyasri.
This measure will provide the much needed succor to the patients who were adversely affected by stoppage of treatment owing to pending dues to hospitals.
