Him Prahari scheme by Uttarakhand


Uttarakhand government has been seeking the Centre’s cooperation in implementing the ‘Him Prahari’ scheme in areas bordering the hill state. 

What is the Him Prahari scheme?

The ‘Him Prahari’ scheme is meant for ex-servicemen and youngsters and is aimed at stopping the migration of people from the state. The scheme will focus on areas where migration occurs at a rapid phase so that people stay put, and not move out. 

In its 2022 election manifesto, the Uttarakhand BJP unit said it will provide all necessary assistance to ex-servicemen and the youth of the state to settle in the districts that share international borders keeping in mind long term national interest.

Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said that the Uttarakhand government with the help of Police, Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) and Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) for relief and rescue operations in divine calamity, proposes to constitute border guard teams or snow watchdog teams to stop the migration from the villages of international border districts (Uttarkashi, Chamoli, Pithoragarh, Champawat and Khatima of Udhamsinghnagar).

An honorarium is proposed in the form of incentive allowance to the persons involved in the said team. An expenditure of about Rs 5 crore 45 lakh is estimated on this.
