Hon’ble Finance Minister, in the Budget speech of 2015-2016, announced the scheme for distribution of bi-cycles to estimated 40 lakh students of class IX to XII studying in Govt. run and Govt. aided Schools and Madrashas of the State.
Formerly day-scholar students of class V-VIII belonging to Scheduled Caste category enjoyed two grants namely a) assistance in the form of book grant and b) assistance in the form of maintenance grant. The amount of such grants was meagre and did not serve the intended purpose.
BCW Department has introduced e-enabled services for issuance of Caste Certificates and disbursement of all types of Scholarship resulting in transparency, speedy disposal, easy access and increased coverage during last three years.
