Chhattisgarh CM launches free coaching for children of construction workers – The Statesman

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Vishnu Dev Sai has announced a free coaching programme for children of construction workers, which will begin in July. The scheme provides coaching for competitive exams, including the Public Service (PSC), Vyapam (Madhya Pradesh Staff Selection Board) and banking, with the aim of improving educational opportunities for these children.

Labour Minister Lakhan Lal Dewangan stressed that the Chhattisgarh Bhawan and Other Nirman Shramik Kalyan Board is spearheading this effort to benefit the families of registered labourers. The coaching will be provided for a period of four to ten months, which will be available both online and offline and will be launched in ten districts including Raipur, Bilaspur and Durg.

Eligible beneficiaries can apply online through designated centers or labor offices. This scheme also includes children of workers who died before June 9, 2020 and children covered under the new Chief Minister Construction Workers Death and Disability Assistance Scheme.

Jai Ram Das, BJP youth wing leader from Bastar, lauded the initiative, saying it is a transformational step for students coming from labour backgrounds which will bring new hope to their families.

Additionally, Chief Minister Say launched a new facility through the Transport Department, aimed at improving service delivery to citizens. From July 1, applicants who do not receive their driving licences and registration certificates at their given addresses can collect them from the regional, additional regional and district transport offices in their district.

This initiative addresses issues related to documents not being handed over due to unclear or incomplete addresses, which were earlier returned to the transport headquarters in Naya Raipur. The chief minister directed transport officials to ensure that all documents that have not been handed over are made available at the respective district transport offices, to increase access and convenience for citizens. Transport department officials have issued guidelines to all subordinate offices to ensure smooth implementation of this initiative, streamline the process and make it more user-friendly.

These efforts are part of the Chief Minister’s broader agenda to improve public service delivery and address the concerns of common citizens.
