Telangana loses out on funding for roads and infrastructure from central government

In extending support and allocating funds under the Central Road and Infrastructure Fund (CRIF), the Central government discriminates against Telangana. Telangana received just Rs 1,911.62 crore, as compared to Rs 4,213 crore in Gujarat, Rs 4,606.57 crore in Karnataka, and Rs 5,471.95 in Madhya Pradesh, governed by the BJP.

The Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari, replied on Thursday to MP Rita Bahuguna’s question in Lok Sabha that CRIF is scheduled for transportation infrastructure projects. CRIF Act, 2000 amended by the Finance Act, 2019, provides for transportation infrastructure (roads, bridges, shipyards, inland waterways, airports, railways, public transportation), energy, water and sanitation, communication, social, and commercial infrastructure, etc.

Telangana government to offer Rs 5 lakh insurance to state weavers on National Handloom Day

The Telangana government is planning to roll out ‘Nethanna Beema’ to provide weavers with Rs 5 Lakh insurance coverage in partnership with Life India Corporation (LIC).

To implement the scheme at the grass-roots level, the handlooms and textile department of the state government will serve as the nodal agency. The scheme provides insurance coverage to 80,000 weavers working in the state. National Handlooms Day, which is observed on August 7, will mark the launch of the project.

According to the Minister of Industries of Telangana, the deceased’s family will be supported with Rs 5 lakh. After the death, the money will be credited to a family member’s account within ten days.

KTR, the organizational president of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), tweeted, “Let’s start this week/month with a piece of good news. Happy to share that #Telangana Govt will launch a new Life insurance scheme for all #Handloom & #Powerloom weavers on #NationalHandloomDay; August 7. Just like Rythu Bhima, it is first of its kind for Weavers in the country.”
