bommai: Bengalureans to get ration at doorstep from November 1, says Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai | Hubballi News – Times of India


DAVANAGERE: The state government will launch doorstep delivery of ration from November 1 in Bengaluru, covering all 28 assembly constituencies, chief minister Basavaraj Bommai said on Saturday.
This is part of the government’s ‘Jana Sevaka scheme’ which will be launched from January 26 with an aim to take the administration close to the public, he said.
Under this scheme, wheat, flour, rice and sugar will be delivered at the people’s doorsteps.
“The government should not be confined to Vidhana Soudha, but it should go closer to people. A government can become pro-people only if all the institutions working in rural areas function effectively, hence, we’re implementing this scheme,” Bommai said at the relaunch of ‘March Towards Villages’ programme at Surahonne in Nyamati taluk to address villagers’ woes and complaints.
This doorstep ration delivery scheme was first initiated by the AAP government in Delhi and it had been temporarily stalled after the Centre raised objections before it gave its nod.
Bommai said moves are afoot to introduce social security schemes.
“All government services, certificates, documents pertaining to the public and also farmers will be made available in the gram panchayat-level itself and such facilities will be launched soon,” the chief minister said.
He also said the people need not visit taluk offices to get issues sorted out. Grievances, even those regarding pensions, can be resolved at the GP-level, he said.
The CM earlier handed over the government benefits like Sandhya Suraksha, old-age and widow pension, site allotment documents to many beneficiaries. Solid waste disposal vehicles and other facilities were also given away to Surahonne gram panchayat.
