More than 6,40,000 mandays of work generated by Railways under Gareeb Kalyan Rozgar Abhiyan in 6 States

@RailMinIndia
Railways have generated more than six lakh 40 thousand mandays of work under Gareeb Kalyan Rozgar Abhiyan in six States. The States are Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. Rail Minister Piyush Goyal is closely monitoring the progress made in these projects and generation of work opportunities for the migrant labourers under the scheme.

Around 165 Railway infrastructure projects are being executed in these states. Railway Ministry said, 12,276 workers have been engaged in this Abhiyaan and the payment of over Rs 1,410 crore has been released to the contractors for the projects being implemented.

Railways have identified a number of railway works which are being executed under this scheme. The works are related to construction and maintenance of approach roads for level crossings, construction and maintenance of approach roads to railway stations and plantation of trees at the boundary of railway land.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched this massive employment-cum-rural public works campaign named Garib Kalyan Rojgar Abhiyaan in June this year to provide livelihood opportunities for the large number of returnee migrant workers affected by the COVID-19. An amount of Rs 50,000 crore will be spent for building durable rural infrastructure under the Garib Kalyan Rojgar Abhiyaan.
