Not only this, financial assistances are also being provided to farmers under PMKISAN with the goal to double their income. At present, about 2 lakh 35 thousand farmer families in the state are getting 6 thousand rupees yearly in three instalments. He said, the value of rubber has increased significantly during the period of the present state government.

As a result, the rubber growers of the state are reaping huge benefits financially. He said, distribution of sugar in nation shops was stopped during the period of the previous government.

Different kinds of daily commodities including rice, dal, atta. sugar. kerosene etc. are also being distributed in ration shops at present. He said, the present state government is working with a policy to empower women. In this policy, 33% seat has been reserved for women in government jobs, arrangement for discount in revenue in case of land registry in the name of women, hostel for working women and construction of special hospital for women.
