Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has announced on Saturday February 5 that the State Government will issue APL and BPL cards through the recently launched Grama One centres. The government has given its approval for 4 lakh cards to be distributed through these centres.
CM Bommai convened a programme review meeting on Saturday and has urged Grama One operators and Deputy Commissioners from various districts to gather data about beneficiaries using ‘Kutumba Janasevaka’ rather than making them run to offices to provide documents. He said that the aim is to provide speedy service.
The government has launched a reward scheme in which the top three operators will receive cash prizes of Rs. 10,000, Rs. 7,000, and Rs. 5,000 each week for their best performance through the e-Governance department. CM Bommai also said that the best-performing district will receive a cash prize of Rs. 1 lakh.
