3.2cr Women got gas cylinders under the Hp regime | Shimla News

Shimla: The central and state government Ujjwala and Himachal Grihini Suvidha programs have proven to be a boon to the people of the state, making Himachal Pradesh the first smoke-free state in the country. While 1.36 lakh of free domestic connections were provided to Himachal under the Ujjwala program with an expenditure of Rs 21.81 crore, 3.23 lakh housewives received free gas cylinders at a cost of Rs 120 crore under the Grihini Suvidha Yojana of the Himachal government.
Ujjwalla Yojna was started by the Center with the aim of freeing the country’s women from indoor pollution. The Himachal government has also launched the Grihini Suvidha Yojana to benefit as many women as possible as part of this program.
Mukhya Mantri Grihini Suvidha Yojana was launched on May 26, 2018. Through the concerted efforts of central and state governments, women in the state have freed themselves from indoor pollution. In addition, a free LPG connection is also offered to families without gas connection in order to preserve the environment.
The aim of launching the Mukhyamantri Grihini Suvidha Yojna was to provide free gas connections to families who were not covered by the Centre’s Ujjwala program. Thanks to Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana and Mukhya Mantri Grihini Suvidha Yojna, dependence on wood as fuel has decreased. On top of that, the damaging effects of smoke on women’s health have also been alleviated and improved the standard of living for women, officials said.
342 cr in Dec. GST revenue
The Excise and Taxation Department collected Rs 342 crore in GST in December. GST collections in the current fiscal year through December 2021 amount to Rs 3,157.26 crore compared to Rs 2,370.45 crore in the same period last fiscal year, or 33% more than the last exercise. Building the capacity of tax officials, helping non-filers after the last filing date, monitoring the performance of field officials, checking electronic waybills and crediting input tax are some of the factors that have led to improved collections.
