Overview Of Telangana Dalit Bandhu Scheme 2022
Hon’ble Chief Minister Sri K. Chandrashekar Rao formally launched the Dalit Bandhu Scheme on August 16, 2021, in Shalapally, Huzurabad Assembly seat, Karimnagar District.
Background Of Scheme [What Problems Can Be Solved By Dalit Bandhu Scheme ] It is undeniable that individuals from the Scheduled Castes are the most mistreated and hopeless segments of Indian society. Untouchability, the most inhumane of practices, was historically the underlying cause of this horrible position in which this group of people finds themselves. Backwardness is not only economic but also social. Telangana is no exception in this regard, but the government, recognising the grave injustice meted out to these sections of society over centuries, has made the bold decision to implement a revolutionary intervention that will propel Scheduled Caste families into economic development while also ensuring social dignity. These problem can be solved by empowering them for various opportunities hence the Dalitha Bandhu Scheme has launched.
Telangana Dalitha Bandhu Scheme is a flagship and unique scheme in India to empower the Dalit family for business by providing one-time finance aid.
Through a DBT of Rs 10 lakh per family, it is envisioned as a welfare system for empowering Dalit families and involving entrepreneurship among them.

How does the “Dalitha Bandhu Scheme” Benefits SC Families?
K Chandrashekhar Rao [KCR] has admitted that in the past, administrations have requested bank guarantees from Dalit empowerment recipients, and he has stated that his government will ensure Dalit Bandhu is free.
The government provides free financial aid through Dalit Bandhu. This is not a credit card. It is not necessary to reimburse it. There will be no intermediaries in this transaction because it follows DBT. Beneficiaries who are eligible will get help in their bank accounts.
The government has decided to create a system of reservation for Dalits in sectors where the government gives licences in order to stimulate Dalit business.
When it comes to wine stores, medical shops, fertiliser shops, rice mills, and other businesses, the government will provide reservations for Dalits.
A beneficiary can purchase the following things and take service instead of the amount of fund:

- Start a poultry farm
- Dairy farm
- Oil mill
- Grinding mill
- Steel, cement, and bricks business
- Furniture shops
- Cloth emporiums
- Mobile phone shops or even Tiffen centres and hotels.
Aside from monetary help, the government intends to establish a permanent fund called the Dalit Security Fund to assist the beneficiary in the event of adversity.
The fund will be maintained by the concerned district collector and a committee of beneficiaries. The beneficiary will contribute a minimum amount to this fund.
The recipient will be given an identity card with an electronic chip, which will allow the government to track the scheme’s success.
