Around 56,000 women applied for the Basic Income scheme

Over 56,000 women in Chennai have registered for the Kalaignar Magalir Urimai Thogai Thittam, a basic income scheme launched by the Greater Chennai Corporation. The registration camps were set up in 98 out of the city’s 200 wards. Approximately 60% of the residents who received tokens at their doorstep have successfully enrolled in the program.

Officials have assured that eligible residents who missed the initial registration will have another opportunity to register later. In Anna Nagar Ward 104, there was no rush at the registration centers as they efficiently managed the process. Each ration shop in the ward issued tokens to around 100 women, resulting in a total of 606 registrations across the 10 camps.
