Telangana CM KCR who launched the ‘Rythu Bandhu’ scheme to help farmers in the state, now comes with another scheme to help the scheduled caste members in Telangana.
The Telangana government will implement 21 per cent quota for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in awarding engineering works and contracts. Of this, SCs will get 15 percent and STs 6 percent in proportion with their population.
With this, works in departments such as roads and buildings, panchayat raj and irrigation would be reserved for SCs and STs to encourage Dalits to become contractors.
It’s also confirmed that works worth up to `1 crore would be awarded to SC/ ST contractors without the need to pay earnest money deposit (EMD) to the government.
Surprisingly, this is the first time in the country where reservations are provided in awarding contracts and the Telangana state has become a role model for all other states in ensuring social justice for all.
Not just that they are given contracts, the government would also provide free training to engineering entrepreneurs from SCs, STs in National Academy of Construction, Hyderabad, to acquire required skills to become successful contractors.
