Andhra govt to launch scheme providing free insurance to 1.41 crore workers in unorganised sector
Andhra Pradesh's ruling YSRCP government is going to fulfil another of its poll promises with the launch of its flagship 'YSR BIMA' scheme on Wednesday.
The scheme will cover 1.41 crore 'Primary Bread Earners' of Below Poverty Line (BPL) families, belonging to the unorganised sector. The state government will single-handedly be funding the entire insurance scheme.
The estimated value of the premium being paid by the government at this point in time is Rs 510 crores. The amount is expected to go up further as the number of beneficiaries is expected to increase within a few days, once the bank accounts of some of the eligible citizens are operationalised.
