The textile ministry has beat the UPA government's100-day programme implementation deadline by surpassing the target set for extending group insurance scheme for power loom workers of the country.

Against a target of insuring 25,000 weaving workers under a modified group insurance scheme, the textile ministry has been able to insure around 39,221 workers even before the completion of 100 days.

Under the scheme, the workers pay Rs 80 towards the insurance scheme, while the rest of the premium is shared by the government and Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) by contributing Rs 150 and Rs 100, respectively.

The maximum enrollment has come from Karnataka with 13,908 beneficiaries in which the enrollments have been brought in by the Karnataka State Powerloom Development Corporation followed by Coimbatore with 8,097, Ahmedabad 4,855 and Mumbai 4,562.
