Indian Government, at all levels, announces Welfare Schemes for a cross section of the society from time to time. These schemes could be either Central, State specific or a joint collaboration between the Centre and the States. In this section, we have attempted to provide you an easy and single point access to information about several welfare schemes of the Government and their various aspects including eligible beneficiaries, types of benefits, scheme details etc.

  • Samarth Yojna

  • Attendance Scholarships to Scheduled Caste Girls Students studying in Primary Classes
    • It has been observed that the number of Scheduled Caste girls in educational institutions is much less than their population, it is because of the fact that the parents/guardians of these girls are usually very poor and they donot pay any heed to female education. If at all these girls are admitted in the schools, they leave their studies to assist their parents for the augmentation of their family income by taking up menial jobs. Keeping these circumstances in view, the State Govt. decided to adopt some ways and means so that the drop-out tendency is checked initially at Primary stage. Consequently the scheme namely Attendance Scholarship to Scheduled Caste girl students studying in Primary Classes was introduced from the year 1992-93 as district level scheme.

      \Balika Samriddhi Yojana is a totally Centrally sponsored scheme. For that reason the total funding pattern is managed by the Government of India. The Balika Samriddhi Yojana will cover girl children in families below the poverty line, BPL as defined by the Government of India, in rural and urban areas, who are born on or after 15 August, 1997.
      In rural areas the target group can be taken as the families which have been identified to be below the poverty line in accordance with the norms specified under Swarnajayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana known as such with effect from 1.4.1999, previously known as the Integrated Rural Development Programme.
      In urban areas, wherever household surveys have been conducted as per the instructions of Government of India and lists of BPL families are prepared, such lists can be used. Wherever such lists are not prepared, the list of families covered under the Targetted Public Distribution System may be followed. Where neither of these lists are available, as a rule of thumb, families living in urban slums, both recognized as well as those not recognized, may be covered. Also, families which are in urban informal sector and working as rag pickers, vegetable or fish and flower sellers, pavement dwellers etc. would also be eligible. Applications may also be collected from families in non slum areas. Benefits under BSY will be restricted to two girl children in each household born on or after 15.8.1997 irrespective of the total number of children in the household.
