Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said the government was proving grants directly to the farmers by taking lessons from the past.

During the first national gathering of Returnee Centre Nepal organized in the federal capital on Friday, PM Dahal reiterated that the government had adopted a policy to reach farmers at their doorsteps and hand over the grant so that the grant would be utilized. "The grant schemes of billions of rupees were designed, but they were hardly utilized. Those involved in the production were deprived of access to such grants. It had zilch results indeed. Given this learning, the grants this time will be provided on farmers' hands."

The PM further shared that the government had also adopted the policy and plan to mobilize the foreign returnee, their skills, and capital in an integrated manner.

"I believe this association would help utilize the resources available in the country- land, forest, herbs, and hydro resources, among others," PM Dahal said, adding that he was working differently this time. He committed to emerging tough against corruption.

"Fake Bhutanese refugee scam is one of the cases in the garbage piles of corruption in Nepal. Such numerous aberrations need to be addressed well," PM Dahal reminded.

According to him, the policies and programs the government has brought recently have a special focus on production, employment, and agriculture.

The PM announced that government would ensure facilitation at legal, institutional, and procedural levels to best utilize the capital, technology, and knowledge brought in by the returnees from foreign employment.

Also shared on the occasion were the government's efforts to incorporate Nepalis in foreign jobs in the social security fund, set up a help desk at Nepali embassies abroad, and online labor permit.

The government plays a guardianship role to the families of the Nepalis who are injured or have lost lives in the course of foreign employment, the PM committed.
