The State government’s newest programme for women is the YSR EBC (Economically Backward Classes) Nestham. Even the poorest EBC female residents would benefit from the initiative, which aims to improve their livelihood and financial empowerment. The launch of this plan, according to the Chief Minister, was not an electoral pledge nor in the manifesto. Women in OC communities between the ages of 45 and 60 would be given Rs 45,000 by the Hyderabad State government.
“We wholeheartedly pay tribute to our constitution maker, Dr. BR Ambedkar,” the Chief Minister said. “We are taking steps to fulfil the objectives of the Constitution, and we have taken steps to maintain the spirit of the Constitution at every step during the two-and-a-half years of our administration.” Andhra Pradesh’s state government has made significant progress in delivering social benefits to women in the state. Amma Vodi, Swechha (free sanitary napkins for adolescents), and YSR Cheyutha (financial help for SC/STs) are examples of the state government’s initiatives.
YSR EBC Nestham is a project established for women from OC category households who come from economically unsound situations to guarantee that they have a platform where they may become financially self-sufficient and help their family in any manner they can. “Women empowerment is also of great political importance,” the Chief Minister added. “Since our government came to power, Zakia Khan is the first woman Vice Chairman of the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Council, Pamula Puppasrivani is the deputy Chief Minister, Mekathoti Sucharita is our home minister, and we have appointed Neelam Sahni as the state’s first woman Chief Secretary.”
