Jharkhand e-Kalyan Scholarship 2021: Online Registration (Fresh & Renewal Form), Check Status

In the current decade, education is of utmost importance. And time and again, if personal stories are to be believed, it is education that stands at the core of turning fates from those of rags to those of riches. Jharkhand has, over the years, faced a lot of educational issues with people being unable to finish their studies due to some reason or another.

Such a cycle of illiteracy leads to poverty which in turn leads to more illiteracy and this forms a vicious cycle that is hard to break and not just that, but it also ends up pushing people to things on the other side of the law eventually in some cases.

The online portal initiated by the Jharkhand government is an online scholarship portal offering scholarship benefits to students belonging to scheduled castes and scheduled tribes, minorities, and several other backward classes.

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.
