Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today launched the first-of-its-kind ‘Har Hith’ store scheme to promote the sale of quality products of daily need at reasonable prices.
As many as 2,000 stores will be launched in the first phase – 1,500 in rural and 500 in urban areas. The number of stores will later be extended to 5,000 in the first phase.
“These stores will provide a platform to youth franchisees as well as micro small and medium enterprises, government cooperative institutions, farmer producer organisations and self-help groups for increasing their business,” said Khattar while inaugurating a store in Panchkula.
As per the scheme franchise policy, people in the age group of 18-35, women, person with special disabilities, young members of families having annual income less than Rs1.80 lakh and those verified under the Mukhyamantri Parviar Uthan Yojana would be given preference.
“The state government will also guarantee a minimum monthly income of Rs15,000 per month through these stores. As per the sale provision made in the Har Hith store scheme, the franchise partner, who sells products worth Rs1.50 lakh will earn a marginal profit of 10 per cent that is Rs15,000,” the CM said.
The Chief Minister said: “Making Haryana “Berojgar Mukt, Rozgar Yukt” by 2024 is our target and opening of these stores will encourage entrepreneurship and further create an ecosystem that promotes youth to be a part of “Atmanirbhar Bharat”. Speaker Gian Chand Gupta, Agriculture Minister Jai Prakash Dalal and Cooperation Minister Dr Banwari Lal were also present. — TNS
