Uttar Pradesh Cabinet has decided to set up a panchayat secretariat in all panchayats of the state. The move is aimed at strengthening the rural democracy and providing employment to the rural youth. Panchayat secretariat will be established in all gram panchayats for the first time in the state. There are currently 58,189 gram panchayats in UP.

State government has also decided to provide free healthcare to all antyodaya card holders who are not covered under any healthcare scheme. This will benefit around 40 lakh families.

Briefing the media after Cabinet meeting, UP minister  Sidharth Nath Singh said that the government has decided to create about 1.6 lakh jobs, two each in 58,189 gram panchayats in the state by appointing a computer operator and an assistant who will work from panchayat bhawans or rural secretariat buildings to be constructed at gram panchayats where such infrastructure doesn’t exist at the moment.

The Panchayat assistant will be given 6 thousand rupees as remuneration. The state government has also decided to include 40 lakh Antyodaya ration card holders, under the Mukhyamantri Arogya Yojana, the Chief Minister’s free medical insurance scheme that provides for upto 5 lakh rupees free insurance cover. These are the families which are not getting any kind of health insurance cover.
