New Policy Ehsaas Program Online Apply 2022
On March 27, I established the “Ehsaas” programme, with the target of
decreasing inequality, investing in people, and improving underperforming
Ehsaas is about establishing a “welfare state” by countering elite capture
and trying to leverage 21st-century tools, like using data and technology
to create highly precise safety nets; promoting financial inclusion as well
as access to digital services; assisting women in financial inclusion;
highlighting the central role of human capital formation in poverty
eradication, economic growth, and sustainable development; as well as
overcoming financial barriers to accessing health and postsecondary
The program’s principles and approaches also highlight tapping whole-ofgovernment multi-sectoral collaboration for solutions; making sure joint
federal-provincial leadership; as well as mainstreaming the role of the
private sector through an approach which will provide a level playing field
on the one hand and foster locally-relevant innovation on the other, in
terms of job creation and promote livelihood in fast areas. The program’s
basis is centered on the necessity of institutional strengthening,
transparency, and good governance.
The programme is for the extremely poor, orphans, widows, the homeless,
the crippled, those at danger of medical poverty, the jobless, impoverished
farmers, workers, the ill and undernourished, students from low-income
families, and poor women and senior residents. This plan also focuses on
improving lagging areas where inequality exists.
Ehsaas’ poverty reduction plan is stated in four pillars and currently
consists of 115 policy measures, that may be enhanced as the program’s
discussion process broadens. Addressing elite capture, making the
government system function to generate equality are one of the four
pillars, and so are safety nets for disadvantaged portions of the
population, jobs and incomes, and human resource development.
1. Addressing elite capture & implementing fairness
in the government system.
It is also the government’s primary responsibility to care for those who
have fallen below and to construct safeguards against elite capture, as
evidenced by the taxation system, water management, crop selection,
land use priority, labor laws, and much else.
