The Maharashtra cabinet on Wednesday gave its nod to share 25% of the cost for constructing and running working women’s hostel under the Centrally-sponsored scheme in the state.

Earlier, the scheme, cleared by the Centre in November 2017, was run under a cost-sharing basis between the Centre and non-governmental organisations (NGO) at 75:25 ratio. As per the revised scheme, the cost sharing ratio between the Centre, state and NGOs will now be 60:25:15.

A revised scheme for construction of hostel for working women or grant of hostel building on rent-basis will be implemented.

A note from the chief minister’s office (CMO) stated that any organisation or NGOs wishing to implement such a hostel scheme will be provided an annual fund for utilisation of the building as rent. The terms and conditions regarding hostel admission and facilities provided to the boarders will remain the same as it was previously.
