Chandigarh: There is a need to bring all
social welfare schemes, including scholarships and incentives,
under one umbrella to improve their delivery, Punjab Deputy
Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said on Thursday.
Reviewing the implementation of various welfare schemes
here, the deputy chief minister said that due to fragmented
approach of different welfare schemes coupled with plethora of
departments implementing those, the delivery system does not
fulfil the purpose for which these schemes were originally
He said that due to lack of publicity regarding most
schemes, the beneficiaries themselves were unaware of them,
resulting in their poor implementation.
Badal said the administrative reforms panel would also
consider clubbing all schemes and bringing them under one
umbrella for their effective implementation.
