The West Bengal Government launched the Gatidhara scheme in August 2014. The Gatidhara scheme was outlined by the Finance Minister in the budget in February. The families with a monthly income of Rs 25,000 or less would qualify for financial support under the scheme. The transport department will interview applicants and draw up a list of eligible candidates. The labour department would provide the money, but the scheme would be implemented by the transport department. The objective of the scheme is to generate self-employment in the Urban and Rural areas of the state through promotion of transport service.
