This research article presents a comprehensive study on the impact of Prime Minister Welfare Schemes (PMWS) on beneficiaries in Tamil Nadu, a southern state of India. The PMWS represent a pivotal component of India’s social and economic development initiatives, aiming to uplift marginalized communities and improve their living standards. This study investigates the effectiveness and outcomes of these schemes in the unique socio-cultural context of Tamil Nadu.
Tamil Nadu, a state with a rich cultural heritage and a diverse demographic landscape, serves as an ideal microcosm to investigate the efficacy and outcomes of these schemes. This research, conducted through a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods, aimed to assess the implementation, accessibility, and outcomes of various Prime Minister Welfare Schemes in Tamil Nadu. The study focused on beneficiaries across different age groups, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Key findings from the research include an examination of the utilization of schemes such as Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (housing for all), Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (financial inclusion), Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (clean cooking fuel), and Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (income support for farmers), among others. The impact assessment encompassed several dimensions, including economic upliftment, healthcare access, women’s empowerment, and education.
