The state government also increased the income cap for accessing the benefits of Ma-Vatsalya scheme. The persons earning up to Rs 2.5 Lakh per annum may get free medical treatment under the scheme.
Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel was quoted by PTI as saying, “Till now, only people with an annual income of less than Rs 1.50 lakh were eligible for treatment of up to Rs 2 lakh at any of the government-approved hospitals. Now we have decided to raise this income limit to Rs 2.50 lakh, so that more people can benefit from the Ma-Vatsalya scheme.”
Patel said the government has increased the monthly salary of ‘fixed-pay’ teachers of secondary schools from Rs 16,500 to Rs 25,000. Similarly, assistant teachers will now get Rs 16,224 per month.Earlier, they used to draw Rs 10500 per month. Patel said administrative assistants will now get Rs 19,950 from the current salary of Rs 11,500.
Patel added, “Considering their demand, we have decided to allow these 105 local bodies to pay as per the 7th Pay Commission. This will benefit around 15,000 employees.”
