Jagananna Vidya Kanuka Kits Scheme 2020-21

Andhra Pradesh has been one of those states that has always prioritized the implementation of educational schemes. It has always ensured that every student in the state at least receives basic education and educational facilities so that the quality of education they receive is top-notch.

To continue with their tireless efforts of imparting avenues to seamless education, the state government has initiated yet another scheme, known as the Jagananna Vidya Kanuka Kits Scheme.

What is the Jagananna Vidya Kanuka Kits Scheme 2020-21?

Under this scheme, the state government of Andhra Pradesh aims to provide educational kits to government school students. The state government will provide these kits which will contain three pairs of uniforms, textbooks, notebooks, a pair of shoes, two pairs of socks, belts, and a school bag to each student all the way from class 1 to class 10 students in government schools.

How to apply for the Jagananna Vidya Kanuka Kits Scheme?

There is no procedure to apply online for the scheme, as there simply is no need to do that. The scheme will be distributing kits to students across all government schools and it will essentially be implemented by the school education department of the Andhra Pradesh government.

Jagananna Vidya Kanuka Kits details

The kits will be distributed among students on the reporting day which will consist of the following items:

  1. 3 pairs of uniform: each student will be provided with three pairs of school uniform as per their fit and size.
  2. 2 pairs of socks: two pairs of socks will be offered to students and these would be all-weather socks which would be offered in the Video Kanuka kit.
  3. A pair of shoes: each student will be offered with one pair of shoes of either black or white colour.
  4. Textbooks and notebooks: textbooks and notebooks will be offered to students according to their class and would be provided to students on the same reporting day, alongside their kit.
  5. 1 belt: students would be given a belt as an accessory to their uniform
  6. Bag: a school bag that matches the size of the student in accordance to his/her class will also be provided to students so that they can carry their books and several study materials from home to school and back home again.

Summing it up

For years, students have been dropping out of school since they lack the resources required for smooth academic sessions. A lot can also be attributed to their psychology. If students do not have proper uniforms or shoes or studying material, it largely impacts their attention and hampers concentration. In such a case, any and every effort from the educator falls on deaf ears.

To help students not drop out of government schools and at least stick around to attain basic education , the Andhra government has initiated this scheme. The AP government has also identified 9 basic components including toilets, fans, access to safe drinking water, proper furniture, compound walls, and science labs among others to be key factors to work on.

This will make education a whole lot better for students year after year as they would be motivated to show up to school.

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.
