Malati Devi Prak Vidyalaya Paridhan Yojana 2021
The main objective of Odisha Malati Devi Prachar Vidyalaya Scheme is to provide 2 sets of free uniforms to pre-school children. Children who belong to the economically weaker sections of the society study in Anganwadi centers which require uniforms. Their parents are not able to buy new uniforms for such children and to ensure that such poor parents are benefitted, this equal distribution scheme has been introduced.
Now the state government is providing free school uniform (2 sets) to every child studying in AWCs. About 14.83 lakh pre-school children studying in 61,040 AWCs have already received uniforms on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti. The new initiative is going to encourage more students to enroll in schools.
