The Cabinet decided to include OBC and general category students in its 'Jai Bheem Mukhyamantri Yojana'.


New Delhi: 

The Delhi Cabinet on Tuesday decided to include other backward class and general category students in its 'Jai Bheem Mukhyamantri Yojana', and enhance financial assistance from Rs 40,000 to Rs one lakh for coaching for various competitive exams. Briefing reporters on the Cabinet decisions, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that earlier, the scheme was only for the scheduled caste category students under which financial assistance of up to Rs 40,000 would be provided.    

The move comes at a time when only a few months are left for the Delhi Assembly elections scheduled to be held early next year.

According to Mr Kejriwal, a civil service aspirant will be provided Rs one lakh financial assistance for 12-month coaching.

He said an applicant whose annual family income is less than Rs eight lakh will be able to avail the scheme.
