Our Bureau

Hyderabad , Oct. 10

THE State Government will launch AP Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme during the middle of February 2006 by creating 100 days of guaranteed wage employment under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act 2005.

The State Government has decided to send a team of officials to Maharashtra to make an in-depth study of the implementation of the programme there, before finalisation of the scheme in Andhra Pradesh, according to an official release here on Monday.

While appreciating the suggestion to extend health insurance scheme to the labourers by contributing a day's wages as premium under the scheme, the Chief Minister, Dr Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, urged the officials to see that the beneficiaries would not misuse their earnings under the employment guarantee scheme.

According to the release, the Chief Minister also asked the officials concerned to ensure that all the beneficiaries under the scheme were only the poor and weaker sections.

Dr Reddy has also directed the officials to formulate an action plan for providing wage employment to the rural poor during drought situation and during off-seasons.

The State Government is contemplating to set up a group of ministers to advise on the formulation of APREG Scheme and also an Employment Guarantee Act cell in the office of the Commissioner of Rural Development.

The scheme would be implemented in eight districts of the State - Kadapa, Anantapur, Adilabad, Rangareddy, Mahabubnagar, Warangal, Khammam and Nalgonda. Five more districts are likely to be notified additionally in the State, the release said.
