Chhattisgarh budget: Presenting the Chhattisgarh Budget-2023, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel announced that the state government will provide a monthly allowance of Rs 2,500 to unemployed youth aged 18-35 years whose annual family income is less than Rs 2.5 lakh. The Chhattisgarh government has announced an increase in the monthly honorarium of Anganwadi workers from ₹ 6,500 to ₹ 10,000.
The budget session of the Chhattisgarh Assembly began on March 1. This is the last state budget presented by the Baghel government before the assembly elections scheduled for later this year. This created interest in the budget. It seems that giving compensation to unemployed youth and announcing an increase in the monthly honorarium of Anganwadi workers from ₹ 6,500 to ₹ 10,000 will have an impact in the upcoming elections.
Bhupesh Baghel said in a video announcement on Sunday, “Our state is leading the nation. People’s perception has changed. The budget that I am going to present on Monday will give a new reality to the dreams of our state, which will speak on the ground and not in the sky,” he said. Baghel said that the people of the state know the difficulties faced. “… The people of the state are aware of the problems they have faced, be it the global covid pandemic or other challenges. But I am proud to say that we have overcome all the challenges and we are one of the best states in terms of economic management,” he said.
