Karnataka Government Introduces Gruha Lakshmi Scheme for Women Heads of Family
New Delhi: The Karnataka government has recently unveiled the Gruha Lakshmi Scheme, a new initiative aimed at providing financial assistance to women who are the heads of their households. Under this scheme, eligible individuals can now apply for a monthly allowance of Rs 2,000 either through online or offline channels.
Minister for Women and Child Welfare, Laxmi Hebbalkar, has emphasized that the implementation of this scheme is estimated to incur an annual cost of Rs 30,000 crore to the government.
Applicants can now submit their applications for the Gruha Lakshmi Scheme starting from June 16. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah inaugurated the Seva Sindhu portal at Shakthi Bhavan, through which beneficiaries can submit their applications. This portal offers a convenient online platform for application submission. Additionally, beneficiaries can also opt for the offline mode of application submission.
To be eligible for the Gruha Lakshmi Scheme, applicants must hold Below Poverty Line (BPL) or Antyodaya cards. They can submit their applications free of cost through the Seva Sindhu portal, Bengaluru One, Karnataka One, and Grama One centers. It is important to note that applications from taxpayers will be rejected, as it is impossible to conceal this information.
Applicants are required to provide their own Aadhaar card as well as that of their husband’s. For any inquiries or clarifications, a helpline number, 1902, is available for assistance.
Unlike many other schemes, the Gruha Lakshmi Scheme does not have a specific deadline for application submission. The government will continue to accept applications throughout the year.
