Bengaluru: The State Government will re-launch the popular Yashaswini scheme from April 1.
The scheme was launched in 2003 when S. M. Krishna was the Chief Minister. It was cancelled in 2017 citing various administrative reasons. However, the farmers have been demanding the re-launch of the scheme claiming that it was more helpful.
On March 4, in his maiden budget, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had announced that the scheme will be re-launched in the State soon.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who is also the Minister for cooperatives, will re-launch the scheme in a programme in the City. He will also launch the logo of the proposed new bank for the milk producers of the State.
