Bhamashah gave fillip to women
Rajasthan was blessed with a very stellar scheme for ‘Direct Benefit Transfer’ and ‘Financial Inclusion’ in the times when India wouldn’t have mulled over the idea of direct benefit transfer and allied facilities. The scheme which finds its mention not only in India but across its boundaries, it is called the ‘Bhamashah Yojana’.
The panorama of Rajasthan has transformed due to the breakthrough work done under this scheme, which has transferred benefit to the last person standing. This scheme has empowered women and accredited them as ‘head of the family’.
Link ‘Mahila Swayam Sahayta Samuha’ with Banking
Maximum effort should be put to link ‘Mahila Swayam Sahayta Samuha’ with banking. This will make women employed and independent, she asserted.
Referring to Dholpur’s ‘Mahila Swayam Sahayta Samuha’, it is heart-warming that as many as 52000 women have become independent through this association.
CM Raje also urged banks and other financial institutions to extend their services in far-off areas, so that even the last man of the queue is reached.
The institute which has been built under the corporate Social Responsibility initiative of the Punjab National Bank, is the second institute of its kind opened by the PNB.
However, the institute in Jhalawar is the first to have been associated with RSETI, through which youths will be empowered to start their business as entrepreneurs.
