To be implemented in the Huzurabad Assembly constituency as a pilot project, the scheme is aimed at empowering Dalits through a Rs 10 lakh no-strings-attached grant for each of the 21,000 Dalit families in the constituency to help them set up businesses.

Four of the 15 Dalit families who received the cheques decided to utilise the Rs 10 lakh given to them to buy tractors, auto-trolley and car for transportation purposes. Civil Supplies Minister Gangula Kamalakar, Social Welfare Minister Koppula Eashwar and District Collector RV Karnan handed over a tractor each to two families who opted for this business, an auto trolley to another and a transport vehicle to a fourth family at the District Collectorate here, marking the grounding of the scheme.
