New Delhi, Sep 26: To pace up the financial assistance scheme to the dependents of those who have lost their lives due to Covid-19, the Delhi government officials will visit the applicants’ address to verify and collect the required documents.

“A pool of 100 officials of Delhi government created at the SDM level is being utilised for home visits of such applicants who have applied on the e-district portal for verification and to collect deficient documents, if any,” a Delhi government order read.

So far, around 8,000 applications have been filed under Mukhyamantri Covid-19 Pariwar Aarthik Sahayata Yojana, out of which less than 50 per cent belong to the Health Department’s list of 25,000 cases.

This pool has also been assigned with the task of informing the family member, whose address they are visiting, about the scheme and assist them in filling up the application form.

To reach out to the affected families, a list from the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) was shared by the government with all 11 districts.

This exercise has been given a time frame of seven days for completion.

If the applicant does not want to avail the benefits of the scheme or is not available at home, then the same maybe recorded by the official concerned, the order added.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had launched this Covid-19 relief scheme in which a monthly financial assistance scheme and the lump sum ex gratia payment scheme are being extended to the affected families after they have filled out a form.

Run by the Department of Social Welfare, the families under this scheme will be provided with an ex-gratia of Rs 50,000 and a pension of Rs 2,500 per month if the deceased was the family’s sole breadwinner.

The national capital has recorded 14,38,685 cases of coronavirus since March 2020.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
