The state government’s scheme of distribution of 25 chicks of native Aseel birds to each poor family would ensure at least Rs 1 to 1.5 lakh income per annum per family, if the birds are maintained properly to increase its population, sell eggs, birds and meat, said Environment Minister KC Karupannan.
Handing over chicks, costing Rs 13 lakh, to 638 families at Kavundapadi and Salangapalayam in his Bhavani segment, he said that a ryot could get nearly Rs 50000 per annum from one acre land by raising some crop. But, the income is more if they involve in agri allied activities by rearing milch animals, goats and desi birds.
Similarly, if they ensure good education to their wards by utilizing various schemes of the government which offers free education and facilities from LKG to higher studies, their wards could earn nearly Rs 50000 as salary per month and it would go upto Rs 1-2 lakh in future.
That much job opportunity was available in the state thanks to the efforts of the CM who lured many investments from abroad to create new units in the state. If one becomes graduate without arrears, he/she could get job immediately, he noted.
While the PACB and EDCCB were offering crop, milch animal and other loans easily, the government was giving Rs 2.10 lakh subsidy in urban areas to build houses, besides giving houses under PMAY and Green House schemes in rural areas.
While working women were given scooties at 50 percent subsidy without any rigid norms, the Rs 1000 was given as pension to aged persons, widows, differently abled etc.
In the district, 1.6 lakh persons were getting benefit every month. So, in all aspects the present rule was protecting all sections of people, he noted. Animal husbandry and revenue department officials attended the function.
