2 Assam flagships schemes set for launch in BTR next month


Two flagship schemes of the Assam government – Orunudoi and Re-SVAYEM will be launched across the four districts of Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) in June.

The two schemes could not be launched in BTR earlier owing to the elections in BTAD in December last year, and thereafter, the three-phase general elections in March-April this year.

Under the Orunudoi, economically weaker families of BTR will get financial assistance of Rs 830 per month through direct bank transfer (DBT) mode to the bank account of the nominated woman of each family for household expenses.

Under the Re-SVAYEM scheme, seed money and working capital support of Rs 50,000 in two tranches will be provided to members of enterprising groups of BTR for undertaking economic activities or for expanding their existing businesses at the grassroots level.

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Friday chaired a meeting here to review the preparedness for launching the schemes in the four districts of BTR.

Sarma directed the district administration of Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Udalguri districts to take expedient steps to implement the schemes and finalise the lists of beneficiaries for both the schemes.

He asked the officials to consult with the public representatives in preparing the beneficiary list for their respective areas.

The deputy commissioners of the four districts apprised the chief minister of the statistics of beneficiaries, current status of schemes, etc during the meeting.
