Guneshwar stated that the daily wage earners and children who have lost their parents or guardians are most affected during the pandemic and so he highlighted the state government schemes.

Resource person of the programme, advocate Ch Momon spoke on the objectives of the schemes. He apprised the participants on the eligibility criteria, identification of the beneficiaries and the process for registration for the schemes.

Stating that active participation is required at the grass root, he highlighted the important roles which the PLVs and the panel lawyers need to play in helping beneficiaries avail the schemes.
