After coming to power in 2012, Former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav’s government started two schemes for girls who passed the Class X examination. One was ‘our daughter was his tomorrow’ and the second was “Read daughters to increase daughters” apart from KVDY, for the students studying in class 12th. While the beneficiaries of the preschool minority community and other schemes were students of below poverty line (BPL) families, however, the scheme lasted only one year, after which the plan was abolished due to corruption complaints.

The Tribunal said the officer will act as a Lokpal and address the complaints of more than 5 lakh employees of the schools run by the Basic Education Board and government-aided secondary schools. A retired High Court judge headed by the Tribunal will be the judge. The scope of the tribunal will be extended to higher education.

Even the smallest of monetary appreciation given to the students could boost the level of education the children of today follow, all the students would do well creating a good sense of competition and build students focus towards their studies helping to build a better and more advanced nation with girl power.
