Shimla, May 30
A day after PM Narendra Modi unveiled plans for children orphaned due to Covid-19, CM Jai Ram Thakur said such children will be given admission in Central schools, Navodaya Vidyalaya and sainik schools and the expenses would be borne by the government.
“The government will also bear the expenses of such children studying in private schools,” he said.
He said every such student would be enrolled as a beneficiary under the Ayushman Bharat Yojana and the premium amount would be paid by PM-CARES Fund till they attained the age of 18.
Under the CM Bal Seva Yojana, every such child will be provided Rs 3,500 per month. He said the state government would also provide Rs 51,000 to orphan girls under the Mukhyamantri Kanyadaan Yojana. — TNS
