Vastavam web: AP CM YS Jagan decided to apply the YSR Cheyutha scheme for Budaga Jangam, Valmiki, Eneti Kond and Bento Oriya castes without the need for caste verification. The decision was taken in the wake of the fact that these four castes are having difficulty in getting the caste certification document for various reasons. As per the directions of the CM’s office, the authorities have taken steps to provide the YSR Cheyutha scheme to the eligible persons with self-certification. It is learnt that on August 12, the government launched a YSR Cheyutha scheme to pay Rs 75,000 in four installments to women between the ages of 45-60 in SC, ST, BC and minority communities in the state.
