No changes has been made in any of the schemes including Mgnrega, remuneration to anganwadi and health workers.

“The panel has included law and order and justice delivery in the core scheme,” said Das. Jharkhand had pleaded that because law and order is the crucial prerequisite for development, the panel should include law and order in the core scheme, added the Chief Minister.
