Jagan to Transfer Rs 81.64 Crore Under YSR Kalyanamasthu and YSR Shaadi Tohfa
Vijayawada: Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy would, on Thursday, deposit Rs 81.64 crore as financial assistance under YSR Kalyanamasthu and YSR Shaadi Tohfa, in the bank accounts of 10,511 couples who got married during the July-October 2023 period.
The Chief Minister said, “To avail YSR Kalyanamasthu / YSR Shaadi Tohfa, passing Class X is made mandatory for both bride and groom. They must be at least 18 and 21 years of age respectively by the time of their marriage. With this, the YSRC government is not only preventing child marriages but also ensuring that children get educated up to Intermediate with the help of Jagananna Amma Vodi.”
“They can pursue higher education and become graduates with full fee reimbursement through Jagananna Vidya Deevena, and avail financial assistance for their boarding and lodging through Jagananna Vasathi Deevena.”
Officials said the state government is providing financial assistance to poor parents to perform their children's marriage in a dignified manner after their education, through YSR Kalyanamasthu for girls belonging to SC, ST, BC and Disabled, and construction worker families. This is done through YSR Shaadi Tohfa for the girls from Minority communities.
Since the inception of the scheme, and including the assistance being provided today, the Jagan Mohan Reddy-led government so far disbursed '348.84 crore under YSR Kalyanamasthu / YSR Shaadi Tohfa to the accounts of 46,062 beneficiaries soon after completion of the same quarter for which they applied.
“The previous government failed to disburse marriage incentives of '68.68 crore to 17,709 beneficiaries. The YSRC government has almost doubled the incentives under this scheme and is extending them to a broader range of beneficiaries,” YSRC sources claimed.
