Free medical check up and medical treatment will be given to every girl child till 18 years under the proposed scheme, Yeddyurappa said.

Aasare scheme

Reviewing the Aasare scheme for housing to the flood-affected in north Karnataka, Yeddyurappa expressed his concern that only 1,000 houses of the 62,000 houses planned, only 1,000 were constructed. Work on the construction of 26,099 houses is under progress. He directed officials to ensure that all houses are constructed by the end of October.
Revenue Minister Karunakara Reddy said many NGOs which had come forwarded to construct houses, have backtracked. An appropriate decision has to be taken in this regard.
