In March 2024, the Tamil Nadu government initiated the 'Neengal Nalama' (Are you fine?) scheme, a beneficiary outreach program aimed at evaluating the implementation of flagship schemes and addressing public grievances. Led by Minister of Rural Development I. Periyasamy, Chief Minister M.K. Stalin, other ministers, senior officials, and district collectors reached out to beneficiaries across the state.

Under this scheme, people are contacted by the Chief Minister, Chief Secretary, Department Heads, Department Secretaries, and District Collectors to assess the level of benefit and identify any bottlenecks related to various schemes.

As part of 'Neengal Nalama', the Chief Minister launched a web portal to interact with government scheme beneficiaries, aiming to enhance government services by gathering views from beneficiaries. Through the web portal, users can express their opinions regarding the welfare projects of the Tamil Nadu government.

Key flagship programs of the Government of Tamil Nadu include:

  • Kalaignar Magalir Urimai Thittam: Supporting 1.15 crore women with a monthly cash benefit of Rs. 1,000.
  • Vidiyal Payana Thittam: Enabling women to make 445 crore free bus trips.
  • Makkalai Thedi Maruthuvam: Providing health services at the doorstep to more than a crore people.
  • Free Breakfast Scheme: Serving 16 lakh students daily across the state.

The 'Neengal Nalama' scheme aims to improve government services by directly interacting with beneficiaries and gathering their feedback. Despite political challenges faced by the state, this scheme reaffirms the state's commitment to uplifting every family in Tamil Nadu.
