Gruha Lakshmi Scheme
The Gruha Lakshmi Scheme, a commendable initiative launched by the Karnataka Government, has kickstarted its registration process on 19th July 2023. This scheme aims to provide vital financial assistance to women who are the heads of their households.
Under the Gruha Lakshmi Scheme, eligible beneficiaries will receive Rs. 2000 per month, offering much-needed support to women shouldering the responsibilities of their families. The distribution of funds is set to begin from August 15-20, and the registration will remain open for a year. With a substantial budget of Rs. 18,000 crore allocated to this program, it is anticipated to benefit over 1,11,00,000 women across the state, supporting approximately 12.8 million families.
The Ministry of Women and Child Development takes the lead in implementing the Gruha Lakshmi Scheme, showcasing the government’s commitment to empowering women as the heads of their households.
To be eligible for the Gruha Lakshmi Scheme, women must be listed as the head of the family on either the Below Poverty Line (BPL) or Above Poverty Line (APL) cards. Additionally, neither the women nor their spouses should fall under the income tax category, and they should not be employed by the government.
