E-Rickshaw Subsidy Scheme in Chhattisgarh 2018-19 Labor Class [ Application Form, Eligibility Criteria, Registration Process]
The central as well as several state governments are trying their best to provide some assistance to people who work in the manual labor section. In one such attempt, the state government of Chhattisgarh has announced a subsidy scheme for rickshaw pullers. But they will only get the subsidy in case they purchase an e- Rickshaw. The name of this unique project is E-Rickshaw Subsidy Scheme.
Launch details of the scheme
On the 14th of May, 2018, the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh announced a scheme that brought a smile on the faces of rickshaw pullers. As per the draft, the implementation of the program will be done by the State Labor Department. Dr Raman Singh made this announcement, while he was addressing the residents of the state via a radio based telecast, called “Raman Ke Goth.”
Key features of the scheme
- Development of labor class – Pulling rickshaw manually is a tough task. As the temperature during day time rises high, rickshaw pullers find it hard to work for long. The implementation of the scheme will offer them some respite.
- Type of rickshaw – Under this scheme, each applicant will get an electronic rickshaw. It works on battery. It means, rickshaw pullers will no longer have to exert too much pressure
