Chandigarh: Besides implementing the Food Security ordinance in the state, the Haryana government on Wednesday decided to provide 2.5 kg of pulses per month at a subsidised rate to BPL families.
2.5 kg pulses per month at a subsidised rate of Rs 20 per kg will be provided to every BPL family for meeting their nutritional needs, Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said here.
The decision would benefit about 12.84 lakh BPL families in the state and ensure nutritional supplement to the beneficiaries, he said, adding the decision would be implemented from August 20, the birth anniversary of late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
The state government has decided not to recover property tax till the committee constituted under chairmanship of state Parliamentary Affairs minister Randeep Singh Surjewala to rationalise property taxes, submits its report, he said.
The decision has also been taken in view of several representations made by people regarding rationalisation of property tax and the committee would submit its report within a month`s time, he said.
