Key Decisions taken in Assam Cabinet

Guwahati:  In the weekly Assam Cabinet meeting held under the leadership of Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday some major decisions were taken. 

The State Cabinet took a slew of important decisions like providing land for the Bhutan Consulate, moving the Supreme Court on Aadhaar cards, sanctioning the construction of 1,085 bridges, and job reservations for ex-servicemen, simplification of land allotment, etc.

The Assam government is on a mission to renovate wooden bridges across the state, particularly in the rural areas. Well, the Assam Cabinet, in its latest meeting held yesterday, has taken a decisive step to reconstruct the existing wooden bridges into concreate ones. In this regard, the government will be sanctioning a fund of Rs 4 thousand, 3 hundred and 50 crore for the development project. This was informed by minister Pijush Hazarika.

Additionally, the Cabinet has decided that from now on, the approval for the construction of FCI Warehouses can be obtained from the DC itself. In other words, the DC may not need to send files to the secretariat for approval.

The cabinet also decided to provide AADHAR cards to those whose names have not appeared in the NRC.

It may be mentioned here that this category of people has been facing difficulties in reaping the benefits of important government schemes with no AADHAR cards.

The government has also decided to launch a new scheme for emergency funds. The new Scheme for Public Emergency is aimed at helping people who have suffered losses, both in terms of life and finances. These may include loss of lives and property in floods, fires, and other calamities. In this regard, the cabinet has decided to keep a sum of Rs 10 crore for the emergency scheme.

The cabinet has also decided to establish an office of the Bhutanese Consulate General in Dimoria. The government has sanctioned 5 bighas of land for this purpose. Additionally, 77 bighas of land have been sanctioned for the battalion camp of the CRPF.

The Cabinet decided to submit an interlocutory application to the Supreme Court to pave the way for the issuance of Aadhaar cards to around 28 lakh people of the state. The purpose of the interlocutory application is to enable the parties to get temporary relief in pending matters.

The Cabinet simplified the land allotment system to state and central government agencies to construct godowns or warehouses. At present, the land advisory committees (LACs) approve such proposals and send them to the Revenue Department. The Revenue Department moves the proposals to the Cabinet for approval. The deputy commissioners allot lands for the purpose only after getting the Cabinet note. However, from now the deputy commissioners will allot land for such purposes after approval by the LACs.

The Cabinet approved a scheme for ex-gratia payment named CM’s Scheme for Public Emergency — with Rs 10 crore. This scheme is for immediate financial relief in deaths due to floods, damage or dealth due to fire, next of kin of those who die in boat mishaps, financial help to ailing national level sportspersons and others. The Cabinet approved two percent job reservation for ex-servicemen applying for grade 1 and grade 2 posts in the State Government.
