What Exactly Is Rajasthan Aapki Beti Yojna?
We all have seen how in this dominant society, girls struggled hard to even get good schooling. But times have changed and there are so many better options that you may see which offer girls good support to accomplish their academic career. Rajasthan Beti Yojna is one such scheme that focuses on giving girls much-needed financial aid so that during their academic career, they can focus on study and not be worried about earning money especially if they belong to a lower-middle-class family or labor background. Certainly, some documents need to be submitted. But upon submission, the process to avail of the benefits is not at all difficult.
Earlier this scheme was started in the year 2005 where girls from the state studying in the state school were eligible to get around 1110 to 1500 depending on the class in which she is studying. However, with this initiative started by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, the amount for the financial assistance has now increased and now women are entitled to get financial support up to Rs.2500./- As per State Government Circular No. 01 (18) / Praci / Ayo / 2019 /, Aapki Beti Yojana is for those girls who stay below the poverty line and can get all kinds of financial assistance which is needed for academic growth.
Rajasthan Aapki Beti Scheme purpose:
The ideal purpose of starting this Rajasthan Beti Yojna by the Rajasthan state government is to encourage more girls to study no matter from which background they belong to. But often girls stating in the family below the poverty line are not able to even afford the basic educational facilities. That is why this scheme has come up. This scheme however is only available for those who are studying in the semi or state government school. The scheme aims at giving money assistance to girls studying for 1st to 12th standard. It is operated under the Jaipur’s Balika Shiksha Foundation
All new Improved Rajasthan Aapki Beti Yojana
When this scheme was started women were given 1100 for class 1 to 8 while those studying in 9 to 12th were eligible for Rs. 1500. But the time has now changed and according to all new scheme amendments, the very first noticeable change is the increase in the amount which is from Rs.1100 to Rs. 2100 and from Rs.1500 to Rs.2500 which certainly is one notable act. Since it is only meant for motivating the girls, it clearly shows how the nation is focusing hard on bringing the girl's education ahead.
