Starting from 1st of December, 2020, Initiative for taking government services to the doorsteps of people will be launched in West Bengal. "Duare Duare Sankar" is the name of the initiative that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee declared at Khatra located in the Bankura district. To run till January 30, the initiative will attempt to convey forthcoming services to individuals. 

From December 1st 2020, government camps will be conducted every day from 11 am till 3 pm in every section of the state where individuals can come and request for any assistance they have not gotten at that point. We will attempt to give it immediately and in an event where it is not possible to provide the services to all the people at once. Name of all the candidates will be recorded and the administrations will convey the services to 10 individuals at one time," Ms Banerjee said. 

The scheme is criticised by BJP Chief Dilip Ghosh and commented, "Not long before elections, you recall adivasis (tribals) and jangalmahal (that incorporates tribal controlled regions of Bankura, Purulia, West Midnapore and Jhargram). Individuals have seen such declarations are being made only for the elections. She is discussing education for adivasi young ladies now. What was she accomplishing for the last decade?". 

The new scheme offers a cent percent scholarship for adivasi students along with housing guaranteed for those individuals who haven't got one yet. Also several other services are offered with the same. The organization was likewise approached to accelerate distributions of bicycles under the Sabuj Sathi scheme. 

Banerjee said in numerous important projects, youngsters landed jobs yet once the plan had run its course, at that point everything shut down and they got jobless. "I met a few youngsters who revealed this to me. However, in West Bengal, there has not been a solitary such case on account of state-run projects," she said. 

"They take our cash and send a proportion back. For 100 days work, cash arrives in 90 days. Why? Individuals ought to get it inside 7 days. I have never eliminated positions. I have expanded the age limit for employment. In the nation, unemployment has heightened by 49 percent. We have decreased it by 40% in West Bengal," Ms Banerjee said. 

The new plan and Ms Banerjee's emphasis on advancement work in Bankura and the neighboring area is being seen as a response to Home Minister Amit Shah's visit on November 5 to Bankura, where he ate at the home of a Dalit family and garlanded an tribal hunter's sculpture.
