In form of Mukhya Mantri Medhavi Vidyarthi Yojana, the Government took innovative steps to pave way for brilliant students of poor category to pursue higher education. After Laadli Laxmi, Medhavi Vidyarthi Yojana is an innovative scheme to shape up future of brilliant students.

The Department of Education and Skill Development were assigned to execute scheme under which higher education has been made free for brilliant students. Students who are domicile of Madhya Pradesh and have scored equal or more than 75 per cent in Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education or 85 per cent or above in CBSE and ICSE in class XII in 2016 and later, have been made eligible to avail benefits.

In addition, annual income of students’ parents should be less than Rs 6 lakh. The Government has also initiated another scheme to distribute laptops to promote intelligent students in class XII Board Examination.

As per requisite, general category students and SC/ST students have to score 85 per cent and 75 percent respectively in class XII. They receive amount of Rs. 25 thousand to purchase laptops. While the CBSE students have to obtain 90 percent for obtaining laptops. The CBSE students went to the court against this decision of the State Government. The Court’s decision is awaited.

Around 18 thousand brilliant students received the amount in 2015-16. The new academic session as witnessed the introduction of NCERT books of particular subjects in particular classes to the objective to yield better results in examination especially in competitive ones. The feedback is awaited.
With the motto to transform the students into a better human being, Mil Bache Madhya Pradesh started in the State.

Under ‘Mil Banche Madhya Pradesh’ the politicians, IAS, IPS and other efficient officials interacted with children and shared with them their personal experiences to update the students other than their bookish knowledge. These politicians and officers also read the excerpts from the books amidst the children and encouraged the children for development of reading habit. They also shared tips with the children on personality development. The famous MOWGLI festival was rescheduled and organized in four places except the original place Mowgli belonged to i.e. Seoni’s Pench Tiger reserve. The four places where the students were taken for camping included Kanha, Satpura, Bhandhavgarh and Shivpuri.

Once again the girl students surpassed boys by registering 9.5 percent higher results. While in CBSE X students obtained 93.30 in Ajmer region. Similarly, the students from Madhya Pradesh Board of secondary Education scored 67.87 percentage in Class XII Board Examination. Shockingly, the department had to satisfied with mere 49.86 percent marks in Class X.

Various competitions organized at different levels in Jabalpur district became a flop show in lack of students’ and schools’ participation. Vigyan Mela, Vigyan Seminar, Vigyan Natika and other competitions met the same fate. The teachers, adhyapaks and other teaching cadres were seen protesting against various irregularities throughout the year.
