Raipur: After the model code of conduct was lifted due to imminent general elections in Chhattisgarh, the state’s Labor Minister, Lakhan Lal Dewangan, recently chaired a lengthy meeting to discuss all departmental schemes. In this review meeting, the Labour Minister of Chhattisgarh pointed out that all the officials should release the amount for the beneficiary as soon as possible under the CM Construction Workers Housing Assistance Scheme. Funds have been sanctioned to 352 beneficiaries across the state as per the guidelines of Minister Shri Dewangan. All the 100 beneficiaries will soon get ₹1 lakh credit directly into their bank accounts using the Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) mode.

The main objective of launching the Construction Workers Housing Assistance Scheme the Chief Minister is that it gears to give financial support to the registered construction workers under the Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board. Using this financial assistance, eligible workers can either construct a house on their own land or move to new houses. The proposed scheme addresses the contractors supplying adequate funds to improve the residence status of construction workers.

Minister Dewangan has also told the labor department officials in all the districts to ensure that the scheme is taken to anybody involved in construction work to enable these people to benefit from the scheme. He noted that it is crucial to help the workers complete and submit the forms since no worker should miss out on the scheme opportunity.

These funds are anticipated to help enhance the housing situation for many construction individuals in Chhattisgarh as the funds are approved and disbursed. The Labor Department is all geared up to properly execute the scheme and also to maintain the transparency aspect of it.
