Bihar Govt. to Promote SC / ST / EBC / Youth / Women Entrepreneurship
An analyst said Nitish Kumar led Bihar government was generous with innovating schemes but they didn’t have the desired impact since doing business in the state was not easy owing to “deterioration in law and order, high cost of land and bureaucratic red-tape”. An automobile dealer says there were only 240 women among the 21,112 applicants, who applied for incentive under the CM’s rural transport scheme launched last year in 2020. He feared women may not again participate in huge numbers in the new scheme. Schemes for other classes might be lapped up in the job-scarce state like Bihar.
Opposition alleged that the state govt. had failed miserably in keeping up its employment-generation promises. “What happened to the CM’s call to provide jobs to all migrants during their return last year? They had to leave the state… Bihar would have developed a lot, had the government been sincere in executing even 5% of the cabinet decisions.”
Janata Dal (United) leader and former minister Neeraj Kumar, however, dismissed the allegations and stated that Nitish Kumar was committed to “honest implementation” of the project. He mentioned that “Seven resolves are the schemes that the CM is committed to implement. He has been monitoring their implementation personally.”
In other important decisions taken on Tuesday, the cabinet raised the state contingency fund to ₹8,732.10 crore from the existing limit of ₹350 crore. The transport department’s proposal to incentivise the retailers of vehicles for selling registration numbers of choice also got its approval.
