Unveiling the scheme this afternoon, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said that married women, divorcees and widows would be benefited under the scheme. 

Parrikar said that the scheme was "anti-inflation" and has been introduced to off-set the impact created due to the price rise induced by Union Government's "faulty policies". 

The Chief Minister said that an amount of Rs 150 crore has been earmarked for this scheme for the current year, which will cover one and half lakh beneficiaries. 

"Every month, we will cover 15,000 applications," he said adding that the Directorate of Women and Child Development would be implementing this scheme. 

The beneficiaries, he said, should be more than 18 years of age. 

The forms for this scheme would be made available through the offices of the directorate across all the talukas.

Respected Sir,

Thank you very much for helping poor people, but when are doing the paper work to submit for Resident Certificate and Income Certificate don't ask what trouble the Panchayat and Mamaldar giving to them, they are treating them as though they are coming to have their pocket money.

Any way Thanks a lot from Goan Women.

reading the schemes requirements it is clear that it is ment to buy migrant votes by our money (rs. 3 lakh per year for a family etc.)

monu should inagurate the scheme by giving it first to bhaves wife now that her husband died among goans only she is entitled for it. further his chamchas can expect her to be eternally graceful for the kindness of their great leader.

Mezavoilim Kellim kadun firyad jodpachem ek new edition. Government money.. whose father's what goes, my father's xxx goes...

As long as there is a long queue of chamchas and pimps with false/ multiple identities to justify actions and hail the " Fuhrer", the Bhasmasura will keep growing in power and the stature. This is his second inning and one can see the desperation of his sycophantic band of supporters through their reactions which have begun to pop up on every forum ever since he assumed power. Their myopic journey starts with Manu ( the notorious Manu smriti fame) and end at the modern U turn fame Monu.

Appreciate the man for his long term vision for Goa (if he has one) and not his populist actions intended to garner more votes.
