Need for Sikkim Sishu Samriddhi Yojana

The Himalayan state has the lowest population in the country at 6.10 lakh, as per 2011 census. CM Tamang's govt has been taking a slew of measures to encourage couples to have more babies to fend off concerns over the aging population. Shishu Samriddhi Yojana is a major initiative to encourage people to have more babies which would raise the state's population. Other initiatives includes additional increments for government employees having two or three children, maternity leaves of one year for female government employees, and financial grants for non-working mothers.

"The low fertility rate among the local indigenous population is a matter of serious concern in Sikkim. We must do everything in our hands to reverse the process," CM Tamang had said last year. At the programme in Soreng, the CM said the nearly 25,000 temporary government employees who have completed four years in service will get the memorandum for regularisation on February 29 in Rangpo. Earlier this month, the state cabinet had approved the regularisation of government employees and the restoration of the old pension scheme.

The CM also announced that Rs. 48 lakh will be spent on the construction of homestays, which will create employment opportunities and boost tourism in the state. Tamang inaugurated a fire station in the Soreng district. The building at Singling has been constructed at a cost of Rs 5.5 crore. The building has residential quarters and restrooms, among others.
