Aspirants who are willing to make it big and are ambitious enough to get to where they dream of would breathe easy at the knowledge of this scheme. Among the various expenses that arise while opting for a higher education course, let not hostel fee prove to be another thorn in the side. 

To ease students from the burden of hostel fees, the State Government of Maharashtra decided to launch a scheme which inherently aims to encourage higher education. The scheme is called the Punjabrao Deshmukh Scheme and it will provide hostel fee to the children of under-privileged families and registered labourers who aspire to make it big in life.

The Maharashtra government acknowledges the multitude of people under the Below Poverty Line segment and therefore has kept a whopping amount of Rs 1000 crores aside for aspirants who wish to pursue higher education. 

The State Government funds this scheme for the implementation of educational strategies across the state. 

In conclusion

Once the pressure of affording a roof over your head is taken care of, a student would only have one thing to focus on – studies. And academic excellence, in such stress-free environments, is a definite by-product.

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.
