Narendra Modi.


New Delhi: The Modi government, on Thursday, in probably the last Cabinet meeting ahead of the Lok Sabha election, approved a bunch of decisions like setting up 50 Kendriya Vidyalayas, a push to infrastructure and power projects and expanding health insurance benefits to ex-servicemen.

In a race to beat the model code of conduct that will take effect after the Election Commission announces the schedule of the general election, the Cabinet approved a total of 30 decisions on economic affairs. These decisions include projects for Delhi Metro and a committee to draw up norms for unauthorized colonies. The political implications of the decisions were obvious with the infrastructure projects slated for several states and a big bonanza for Mumbai’s urban transport by way of 191 airconditioned rakes.

The new KVs, which will start functioning from the 2019-20 academic session, will serve one lakh students and will also help in increasing the number of KVs to 1,252. The government has set aside Rs 1,579 crore for development of these KVs over a period of five years. Around 12.5 lakh students study in the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan schools. The Cabinet also approved Delhi Metro’s Phase IV comprising three priority corridors.

In order to benefit over 40,000 ex-service personnel, the cabinet approved the grant of ex-servicemen plus contributory health scheme (ECHS) facilities to World War II veterans, emergency commissioned officers, short-service commission officers and premature retirees.
