Amritsar July 10

The monetary aid under the child protection scheme for destitute, orphan and needy students has been enhanced from Rs 2,000 per month to Rs 4,000 per month per child.

Mission Vatsalya scheme supports children through non-institutional care under private aided sponsorship wherein interested sponsors (individuals/institutions/companies/banks/industrial units/trusts) can provide assistance to children in difficult circumstances.

A foster care approval committee has been formed at the district level to identify beneficiaries and recommend financial benefits for them.

Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori, who is the chairperson of the committee, approved funds for 29 children today. Thori said according to the guidelines of sponsorship and foster care scheme, those families belonging to the urban areas whose annual income was less than Rs 96,000 and those families whose annual income was less than Rs 72,000 in the rural areas could be considered for the scheme.

“Today, financial aid has been approved for 29 children. The money will be credited directly into their accounts”, he said.
