It has been found that about 18 million children are studying in primary and upper primary schools in the state. These children are provided 2 pairs of uniforms, 1 school bag, 1 sweater, 1 pair of shoes and 2 pairs of socks each year. The distribution of shoes and socks, sweaters were started by the Yogi government. Out of which 2 uniforms have a budget of Rs 600, sweaters Rs. 200 and bags and shoes socks around Rs 250 to Rs 300 per student. That is a budget of about Rs. 1100 is spent by the government on a child.
Decision to send money to account after dispute: Every year these schemes cost a budget of about Rs 1800 to Rs 1900 crore. Corruption charges are levelled over the scheme. Sometimes questions have been raised about the quality of goods that students get. The government then decided to send the money to the parents' accounts of the students. In addition, a big problem was for children to get the wrong size shoes, socks, sweaters, and now that too will end. At the same time, the tendering process takes place every year for these facilities, which delay in benefiting children from late latency. One aspect is that these facilities take place from departmental officers to teachers to reach out to children.
