A roof over the head is as important as is food on your plate. However, there is an unfortunate fraction in the population of our country who cannot afford to rent or to buy a house. The Government of India always tries to help and support the underprivileged section of our nation. They have built houses for the lower-income groups (LIG) of people that are available at a subsidized rate, which are relatively affordable to them. This way, they, too, can enjoy the comfort and security of their own home. These schemes, though generally initiated by the Central government, are largely implemented at the state or regional level.
One such scheme launched by the State Government of Andhra Pradesh is the YSRCP Navaratnalu Scheme. This undertaking was launched by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of the state of Andhra Pradesh, Shri Jagan Mohan Reddy, who belongs to the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (abbreviated as YSRCP). The goal of this scheme is to provide all the necessary services that will be aimed towards the development of all regions and districts and all sections of citizens of the state.
What different services does the YSR Navaratnalu Scheme include?
The YSR Navaratnalu is a set of nine welfare schemes that cover almost all the major societal issues and are mainly aimed at the welfare of all citizens of the state of Andhra Pradesh. The included schemes are:
