Court allows CM�s spl package schemes

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Feb 25 - Panchayat and Rural Development (P&RD) Minister Rakibul Hussain today said that the State government has secured the green signal from the Gauhati High Court to implement six schemes under the Chief Minister�s Special Package.

The six schemes under the P&RD Department include financial schemes meant for construction of dwelling houses for homeless, assistance for SHGs, artisans/traders, monthly assistance for poor widows, pension for old-age persons and also financial assistance for farmers under the Krishak Bandhu scheme.

�The Court, on Wednesday, had directed us to go ahead with the implementation of the schemes under the Chief Minister�s Special Package as per the revised norms,� Rakibul told media-persons.

The Court had kept the schemes at bay after a Public Interest Litigation was filed following which an embargo on the implementation of certain schemes was laid. It had also set riders for the successful execution of the schemes.

Hussain claimed that the Court had expressed satisfaction over the way the Government plans had adhered to the guidelines set by it earlier.
