Raipur (thestates.news)| Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, while making a big provision for the rehabilitation of children moving out of child-care institutions of the state in this year’s budget, has announced the launch of Mukhyamntri Bal Uday Yojana for them. This scheme will help children moving out of child-care homes by showing them the right path in their future and helping them to become self-reliant. For this, a provision of Rs. 1 crore has been made in the budget. Additionally, the age for boys and girls moving out of child observation homes has been increased from 18 years to 20 years.
Under the scheme, the State Government will help in rehabilitating and restoring boys and girls more than 18 years of age who move out of child-care institutions. Earlier, children moving out of rehabilitation centers had to face many problems related to accommodation, employment, and joining the mainstream society. In these conditions, children are often tempted to involve themselves in crime. Keeping this in mind, Chief Minister Mr. Bhupesh Baghel has undertaken a thoughtful initiative. Under the instructions of Chief Minister Mr. Baghel and the leadership of the Minister of Women and Child Development Department Mrs. Anila Bhediya, a detailed action plan is being made for the rehabilitation and restoration of boys and girls moving out of child homes.
Provision has been made in the rehabilitation scheme to ensure financial aid to boys and girls for their higher education, job security, and other facilities including accommodation. Chief Minister Mr. Baghel has said that arrangement for commercial skill development for the youth should also be made, so that they can become self-reliant by being self-employed. Chief Minister Mr. Baghel has also given instructions for the provision of community group accommodation for boys and girls moving out of child-care homes in the scheme.
