The state government is sincerely working for welfare of the SC community. Many different types of schemes are there for the upliftment of people belonging to SC community. But many people do not know about them due to lack of proper awareness which is why directions have been given to the officials of the department to prepare leaflets carrying information about these schemes to spread awareness among people, said Minister Bhagaban Chandra Das after inagurating the annual general meeting of Tripura Scheduled Caste Cooperative Development Corporation Ltd, at Dasanth Bhawan, Suparibagan.
Total 115 persons belonging SC community were provided with loans of total 2 crore 51 lakh 13 thousand rupees in the annual general meeting to help them become self-reliant in different ways, Auto-rickshaws were given to 100 persons.
SC Welfare Minister handed over keys of the Auto rickshaws to 4 beneficiaries and loan grant paper to 5 beneficiaries in the programme.
He said, the previous government has left the corporation financially handicapped. The corporation is at present working with transparency.
He also urged the beneficiaries upon timely repayment of the loans.
