Karnataka Shakti Scheme 2023

Congress kept its word that women were allowed on government buses for free by implementing the Scheme. People who are transgender can take advantage of the Scheme. Under the Scheme, people can't travel buses for free outside of the state. State transport corporations like KSRTC, NWKRTC, and KKRTC will set aside half of their seats for men. Until the Shakti Smart Cards are given out, people in the state can use their ID cards from the central or state government.

The government of Karnataka started the 'Shakti Yojana' Scheme, which gives women free travel on KSRTC and BMTC buses. As part of the "Shakti Yojana," government officials gave free passes to women so they could travel in KSRTC and BMTC buses for free when the Scheme started. The change will help more than 41,8 lakh women who travel. Every day, more than 41,8 lakh women will use this free service to get around. The Scheme will cost about Rs 4,051.56 billion yearly from the state's budget. The Scheme is open to all women who live in the state of Karnataka.

The objective of the Shakti Scheme

The primary goal of the state government is to give women in the state a free bus journey. The free bus journey for women scheme will help promote equality between men and women and give women more power by removing obstacles that might make it hard for them to get transportation services.
