UP Bal Shramik Vidya Yojana: A Scheme to Empower Child Labourers in Uttar Pradesh

Child labour is a serious social problem that affects millions of children in India. According to the 2011 census, there are about 10.1 million child labourers in India, out of which 2.1 million are in Uttar Pradesh alone. These children are deprived of their basic rights to education, health, and dignity. They are forced to work in hazardous and exploitative conditions, such as factories, farms, mines, hotels, etc. They are exposed to physical, mental, and emotional abuse and violence. They are also vulnerable to various diseases, injuries, and accidents.

To address this issue and to protect the rights of child labourers, the government of Uttar Pradesh has launched a scheme called UP Bal Shramik Vidya Yojana. This scheme aims to provide financial assistance and educational support to the child labourers in the state. The scheme was launched by the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, on 12th June 2020, on the occasion of World Day Against Child Labour.

The main objective of this scheme is to prevent children from working and to encourage them to pursue their education. The scheme also aims to improve the living conditions and the future prospects of the child labourers. The scheme is expected to benefit about 2000 children in the first phase.

Under this scheme, the government of Uttar Pradesh will provide a monthly allowance of Rs 1000 to the boys and Rs 1200 to the girls who are working as child labourers. The allowance will be given through direct bank transfer or post office account. The allowance will be given for a period of two years or till the completion of class 10th, whichever is earlier.

In addition to the monthly allowance, the government will also provide an annual assistance of Rs 6000 to the child labourers who are studying in class 8th, 9th, or 10th. The annual assistance will be given for buying books, stationery, uniforms, shoes, etc. The annual assistance will be given through direct bank transfer or post office account.

To avail the benefits of this scheme, the child labourers have to register themselves online through the official website of UP Bal Shramik Vidya Yojana. The registration process is simple and easy.
