MP Govt’s key step vis-a-vis Indira Griha Jyoti Yojana

Bhopal, Aug 19 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh Government decided on Monday that consumers eligible under the Indira Griha Jyoti Yojana would be issued bills of maximum Rs 100 each – including meter fare – on consumption up to the first 100 units, it was officially learnt.
The related Cabinet meeting was chaired by Chief Minister Kamal Nath.
Billing for above 100 units will be at the rate prescribed in the tariff order issued by the state Electricity Regulatory Commission. All other subsidies being granted to domestic consumers shall end once the scheme is implemented in inclusive form. Approximately 1.02 crore such users stand to benefit. This will entail an additional burden of Rs 2,666 cr on the exchequer.
The Madhya Pradesh (Scheduled Areas) Moneylenders Regulations, 1972 are in force to check harassment. The gathering approved an amendment ordinance due to some provisions of the regulations becoming irrelevant.
It was decided to provide the Mid-Day Meal Scheme’s benefit to all madrasas recognised by the Madrasa Board and which have been recommended or will be recommended for central grants. Consequently 26,400 pupils at primary level and 7,850 at secondary level shall be benefitted at an expense of about Rs 10.20 cr.
The Cabinet sanctioned purchase of ‘Van Mitra’ software prepared by the Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation for better examining of claims revoked under the Forest Rights Act, 2006.
The period of the merger scheme in connection with employees of the State Oilseeds Growers’ Cooperative Federation was extended till December 31.
