BENGALURU: President of D. Devaraj Urs Backward Classes Development Corporation J. Huchappa has strived hard to ensure that the schemes launched under the corporation reach the needy beneficiaries.
A number of welfare schemes have been effectively implemented since 2016-17 under the chairmanship of Mr Huchappa.

Apart from these schemes, loans have been extended for animal husbandry, sheep rearing and dairying too.
Around 70 self-help women's groups have been provided with soft loans of Rs 2-3 lakh, enabling them to become self-reliant.

About 6,856 beneficiaries under the Ganga Kalyana scheme have benefited and have taken up active farming by drilling borewells at highly subsidised rates.
