Hon’ble Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Smt. Vasundhara Raje has always worked with an objective to establish Rajasthan as one of the leading states in the field of digitization. Taking one step forward to realize the dream of Digital India, Government of Rajasthan has come with its path-breaking initiative – ‘Bhamashah Digital Parivar Yojana’. All the families registered under Nation Food Security Act (NFSA) will be eligible to avail the benefits of this scheme.
Under ‘Bhamashah Digital Parivar Yojana’ the government is providing a financial assistance of Rs 1000 in two installments to every Bhamashah family for purchasing smart phones and an internet connection. The first installment of Rs 500 will be transferred in the bank account of the lady head of each Bhamashah family without any application. The second installment will be deposited to the same account as soon as the family buys a smartphone and makes a digital transaction using it. Government will organize multiple camps across the state where smartphones at subsidized prices will be available for the common people. But it is not mandatory for the beneficiaries to purchase the smartphone from these camps; they can purchase any smartphone of their choice from a retail store as well. The aim is not just providing smartphones to every eligible family but to actually empower them.
Government of Rajasthan has ensured excellence & perfection in its every digital initiative and this step under the umbrella of Bhamashah Yojana will once again create history.
