BC Sakhi Yojana Apply Online

Employment opportunity for a woman has always been a challenge due to regressive notions harboured by the society around working women. And while a new India emerges in the face of adversity, offering equal employment opportunities to women is something that is surfacing all the more these days.

The government of UP has started the Sakhi Yojana which offers employment opportunities to women in Uttar Pradesh.

What does the BC Sakhi Yojana offer?

The Yojana aims to connect rural areas with banks and therefore the government of Uttar Pradesh has introduced the BC Sakhi Yojana. Under this scheme, the government aims to offer 58 thousand banking Sakhi in villages. The government will also provide employment to rural areas and will offer financial support to women from the economically weaker sections of society.

The BC in BC Sakhi Yojana stands for Banking Correspondent.

The women under this scheme will be deployed to rural areas and would be offering banking information about the benefits of banking and banking schemes which are run by the government. This would be a door to door service so that more and more people are roped into banking benefits.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
