Samabyathi Scheme 2024

The West Bengal state government’s Samabyathi Scheme helps the impoverished fulfil their religious obligations and pay for any additional costs associated with cremation or burial for their departed loved one’s kin or closest relatives. The Municipal Affairs Department in the State’s urban areas and the Panchayat and Rural Development Department in Panchayat areas are in charge of carrying out the program. The Scheme is a one-time grant program for the deceased’s funeral expenses.

Purpose of the Somobyathi Prakalpa

Under the Samabyathi Prakalpa, the state government offers the surviving family members of the deceased one-time financial support.  Families with impaired members will be able to bury their loved ones with this money. The state government has made this endeavour to ensure that no impoverished family in West Bengal can bury their loved ones due to financial restraints.  On the other hand, the goal of this Scheme is to pay tribute to the deceased and plan his fitting funeral.
