Proposal related to establish a separate consumer affairs department and the draft of Rajasthan Trees (Plantation & Protection in Urban Areas) Ordinance, 2013 were also given approval by the Cabinet.

The NUHM, to cover all cities with a population of more than 50,000, aims to provide the basic health care needs of the urban population with focus on urban poor by making essential primary health care services available to them.

The mission will be implemented in 61 cities having population above 50,000 in the state in a phased manner and around 1.25 crore people will be benefited by it. In the first phase, it is proposed to be implemented in 33 district headquarters.

The tree protection ordinance provides for fines to cut designated species of trees deemed protected without approval. It also seeks to make mandatory for every plot more than 200 square meters to grow one protected tree.
