Education Department’s proposal of Rs 134 crore for incentive amount to 53 thousand 600 girl students who have passed graduation in Bihar has got the green signal from the Finance Department. Soon the incentive amount will go to the bank account of these girl students. Incentive amount will be given to the girl students who have graduated after 2018 from government as well as non-financed recognized colleges. But due to the negligence of Veer Kunwar Singh, Jaiprakash Narayan and Magadh University, the verification of girl students of recognized colleges of all the three universities could not be done.
The education department has taken seriously the negligence of the three universities. Director of Higher Education Dr. Rekha Kumar has summoned the Registrar of this University in the meeting of the State Council of Higher Education. The Director of Higher Education said that they will have to give hand-to-hand verification, otherwise action will be taken against them. It is noteworthy that under the Mukhyamantri Kanya Utthan Yojna, a lump sum amount of Rs 25000 is given by the welfare department of the state government to all the graduate pass students. However, after April 1, 2021, the amount of the scheme has to be doubled i.e. 50 thousand for the girl students who have passed graduation.
Two lakh girl students are yet to be given incentive
About 2.25 lakh girl students who have passed graduation from various universities have applied online for the incentive amount. Last month, about 35 crores were given to 14 thousand 400 girl students. Even before this, funds have been given to more than 11 thousand girl students. Still about two lakh girl students are yet to be given incentive. Under Graduation Incentive Scheme, amount is given to both married and unmarried girl students. There is a provision to give incentive amount to the bank account through DBT after checking the certificates of the applying girl students through the university and educational institutions. An amount of 550 crore was to be given to 2.20 lakh girl students who have passed graduation from various universities of the state. Still about 1.90 lakh girl students are yet to be given incentive.
