In Jammu and Kashmir, there has been a particular emphasis on raising the percentage of girls who attend school. Girls’ enrollment in public schools has significantly increased as a result of the special programme, particularly in outlying villages and border regions.
One of the causes of this is the government’s provision of incentives to girls, such as free uniforms, free books, and scholarships. In addition, girls who excel in academics and extracurricular activities are praised.
In the border region of the Poonch district, a Model Higher Secondary School distributed scholarships under the “Betti Hai Anmol” programme. Atiqa Jan, a member of the District Development Council, Neelam Sharma, the higher secondary school’s principal, and Mundi Anju Rishi, the acting zonal education officer. Eleven talented female students from the school received a scholarship worth Rs. 55,000 each.
