Ahead of the upcoming Haryana assembly polls, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar launched two insurance schemes in Chandigarh to garner the support of voters. The two schemes launched are namely, “Mukhyamantri Vyapari Samuhik Niji Durghatna Beema Yojana” and “Mukhyamantri Vyapari Kshatipurti Beema Yojana”.

While speaking at the press briefing, the BJP leader said that the premium of both the insurance schemes will be paid by the state government. It is expected that the premium will be covered for almost 38 crore people. An insurance cover of Rs. 5 lakh would be provided under the “Mukhyamantri Vyapari Samuhik Niji Durghatna Beema Yojana”. While in “Mukhyamantri Vyapari Kshatipurti Beema Yojana”, a package ranging from Rs. 5 lakh to Rs. 25 lakh will be provided. This amount will depend on the turnover capacity of the traders.

The Chief Minister also apprised the media on the significance of Mukhyamantri Vyapari Kshatipurti Beema Yojana. He said that such a scheme has been launched for the first time in any Indian state where insurance benefits would be provided to the traders on the basis of their turnover. This insurance will help them in compensating for the loss of their stock caused due to any mishappening such as fire, theft, flood, and earthquake, etc.

Along with these two insurance schemes, Manohar Lal Khattar also announced a plethora of schemes for different sections. These schemes are said to cover a vast range of sections in the society such as women, entrepreneurs, etc.

  1. Families living in electricity-deprived habitats outside a radius of one kilometer from villages will be now covered under the Manohar Jyoti Yojana.
  2. For sanitation workers, a monthly wage hike has been announced. In urban areas, the hike will be from Rs. 13,500 to Rs. 15,000. In rural areas, the hike would be from Rs. 11,000 to Rs. 12,500. It is expected that around 39,000 sanitation workers in the state would be benefitted from the move.
