Madhubabu Ayeen Sahayata Yojana

Legal assistance is one of the grave issues for people in this country – especially in the village levels. Everyone is well aware that the lawyer charges are high, and matters that require legal assistance can be costly. However, at the time of such issues, people are often cheated because they cannot afford proper legal counsel. To solve this issue, the Odisha government has come forward with a proper scheme.

Madhubabu Ayeen Sahayata Yojana

This scheme has been launched by the Chief Minister of Odisha Mr. Naveen Patnaik with the aim to help the poor people get proper legal counsel. As per this scheme, the people at the Panchayat level can get free legal assistance.

This scheme will benefit the poor people at the village level to get the right guidance in accordance with their issues. Many a times the poor do not receive the proper help because they are unable to understand the legal matters. But now this problem has been addressed by the Odisha government.

The aims behind bringing out such as a scheme are the following –

  • As announced by the CM in the inauguration event of this scheme, the Madhubabu Ayeen Sahayata Yojana will help people understand what their legal rights are. It will ensure that the poor people are not mistreated or taken advantage of because they do not understand their rights. It will help them get the right sound advice.
  • The people will not just be supported, but they will also be taught how they can support themselves in matters related to law and order.
