Monthly Rs 1,000 honorarium scheme for Delhi women expected to roll out in September-October: Atishi

The Delhi government scheme under which eligible women will get Rs 1,000 every month is likely to be rolled out in September-October, Finance Minister Atishi said, adding women departed from family voting patterns to support the AAP over the years.

Atishi on Monday presented her maiden budget with a proposed outlay of Rs 76,000 crore in the Delhi Assembly.

In an interview with PTI on Tuesday, she said the Mukhyamantri Mahila Samman Yojana will be notified after the general elections and expressed hope that the scheme will roll out in September or October.

“The notification for the scheme will happen after the Model Code of Conduct for the Lok Sabha polls ends. Afterwards, some formalities such filling up forms, verification and processing of bank accounts will have to be done. My understanding is that by September-October, the first deposits of the honorarium will begin,”
