The government of Andhra Pradesh launched the Jagananna Chedhodhu scheme to provide financial assistance to tailors, barbers and washermen. On Wednesday, the Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that his government has distributed Rs 42,465 crore to almost 3.58 crore beneficiaries within a year. “Perhaps such a huge amount was never transferred to beneficiaries’ accounts in this state,” he told the media.

He also mentioned that candidates who do not find their names in the beneficiary lists despite being eligible can apply for the benefit the village or ward secretariat.

“The scheme will be extended to them within a week. This government looks at ways to give assistance to people, not how to curtail it,” he emphasized.

Under the scheme, the government plans to distribute Rs 10,000 to 2.47 lakh people. In total, an amount of Rs 247 crore has been transferred to bank accounts under the unencumbered mode, so that bankers cannot use the money to cover loan- repayment dues if they have any. 

“We saw how these sections suffered during the lockdown, and launched this scheme to come to their rescue,” he mentioned.

“When schools reopen on August 3, we are giving Vidya Deevena kits, which include three pairs of uniform, shoes, socks, books and bags. We are providing cloth for three pairs of uniform. There are about 40 lakh students, and tailors will get good work. During my 3,468 km padayatra I saw the plight of various sections of people, and as promised, to provide financial aid to Backward Classes, we drafted the manifesto to benefit all people,” he added.

He specifically mentioned that no one will be discriminated on the basis of their caste and creed. 

” It can also be availed by those who did not vote for our party as no eligible candidate should be left out,” the Chief Minister reiterated.
