Anna Bhagya scheme: Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah launched another guarantee under the Five Guarantees Scheme. Under the Anna Bhagya Yojana of the state government, the government has given a cash payment scheme to the beneficiaries in lieu of additional five kg of rice. Significantly, the state government had decided to pay cash to the beneficiaries at the rate of Rs 34 per kg for an additional five kg of rice due to difficulties in procuring rice in large quantities to fulfill the election guarantee. This scheme is applicable to every member of BPL and Antyodaya family.
