The Andhra Pradesh State Government has launched a novel scheme to support the tribal women in their quest for livelihood. ‘Giriputrika Kalyana Pathakam’ is a scheme designed to provide a onetime financial assistance to each tribal woman who gets married. The amount would be disbursed through District Tribal Welfare Office directly to the bank accounts of the beneficiary. Each beneficiary would have to fulfil some mandatory conditions.
Minister for Social Welfare Ravela Kishore Babu said that the State Government intended to popularize the scheme and extend it all tribal habitations.
