Khattar announces to pay interest on loans taken by women's SHGs under NRLM

Bhiwani, Oct 7 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Saturday announced the decision to pay interest on the loans taken by women’s self help groups under the National Rural Livelihood Mission while Development and Panchayats Minister O P Dhankar announced the launch of a new brand in the market for the products produced by these self help groups.

Both Mr Khattar and Mr Dhankar were addressing the state level function of women’s self help groups here.

The Chief Minister said the government would pay interest till the annual income of each member of the groups grew to Rs 1 lakh. He also announced awards for the first three such groups in every district on the basis of annual income. Groups securing the first position would get Rs 1 lakh each, second Rs 50,000 and third Rs 25,000.

The program was organised to accelerate the socio-economic development to align with the resolution of Sankalp Se Siddhi of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Chief Minister urged women to resolve to build a new India by 2022 where sanitation would prevail and where the environment would be free from corruption, terrorism, communalism and casteism.

Mr Dhankar said the state government would promote the products of groups by building a brand. Efforts would be made to increase the annual turnover of such groups to Rs 5,000 crore from Rs 130 crore in the next five years.

“We are trying to connect six lakh families through the National Rural Livelihood Mission and hope we will succeed,” he added.
