Jagan pays Amma Vodi cash benefit for the third year


Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy paid the financial assistance of Rs 6,595 crore under Amma Vodi scheme for the third consecutive year in Srikakulam on Monday. This amount would benefit 43,96,402 families for the education of their children.

Speaking on the occasion, Jagan Mohan Reddy said that the government has disbursed the financial assistance benefiting 82, 31,502 school students for the academic year 2021-22. He credited the financial assistance of Rs. 15,000 under the scheme into the bank accounts of mothers of school children studying from Class I to Class XII.

The Chief Minister claimed that by successfully implementing revolutionary measures under various schemes in the education sector, there has been a remarkable increase in the number of students enrolled in government schools. The strength has increased from 37.21 lakh in 2018-19 to 44.30 lakh students in 2021-22.

The Amma Vodi scheme gives a school-going child’s mother Rs 15,000 per year for educational expenditure. Out of this the government would use Rs. 2,000 for the use of the School Maintenance Fund (SMF) and Toilet Maintenance fund (TMF), he added.

“As of now, the government has spent Rs 19,617.53 crore benefitting 44.50 lakh mothers and 82.31 lakh children under the scheme. To ensure that the funds are used judiciously, the government has decided to implement mandatory attendance of 75 per cent for students which will enable their mothers to derive the benefits of the Amma Vodi scheme. But this time, the government has exempted the ‘minimum 75% attendance restriction’ in 2019-20 and 2021-22 due to the pandemic. Significantly, besides depositing money directly into mothers’ accounts, it also empowers mothers with the right to question the college management and demand accountability,” the chief minister asserted.

Jagan transfers Rs 6,673 Cr into accounts of poor mothers


In the second year of ‘Amma Vadi’, AP Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy has transferred Rs. 6,673 Cr directly into the bank accounts of over 45 lakh mothers. The CM said that his aim is to help the poor mothers give good education to their children. He has seen their problems and inabilities to educate their children during his Padayatra.

At his today’s public meeting in Nellore, the Chief Minister asserted that in just 19 months, his Government has brought in a revolution in education. The poor mothers are not able to send their children to top educational opportunities. Just for sending their children to schools and colleges, the poor mothers’ were being given Rs. 15,000 each. No longer the mothers would send their children to work for lack of money to educate them.

Mr. Jagan said that in the past, the private and corporate schools used to exploit the poor families by charging exorbitant fees. But that situation was not there now. Best facilities were being provided in the schools now. The Nadu Nedu programme was being implemented for achieving this purpose.

The CM said that if any child won’t come to school, their parents would be called on the first day. If the child does not for a second day, the volunteer will visit their homes to enquire about the reasons. Such is the care that the YCP regime is taking.

Jagan yielding to Private school mafia?

Jagan’s somersaults on “Amma vodi” scheme is being debated a lot in social media. The latest announcement of CMO about making this scheme applicable to private schools as well is seen as Jagan yielding to private school mafia or private school lobbying.

As part of the election campaign, Jagan announced that he will give 15,000 for every mother who sends his kids to schools. Jagan promised this scheme will be applicable to mother sending kids to government schools or private. However, after forming the government, YSRCP leaders who are ministers made a statement that the scheme will be applicable only to mothers sending kids to government schools. In fact, many netizens appreciated the decision of the government to restrict the scheme only for government schools. However, now the latest announcement from CMO that the scheme will be applicable to private schools giving the impression that CM might have yielded to private school mafia. The decision is criticized and many are opining that this will break the back of government schools.

Many people opine that private schools get benefited by this as they will not pass the benefit to parents but increase the fees accordingly. Also, others opine that it would have been a good thing if government applies Amma vodi only to government schools and for strictly control the fees of private schools. We will have to wait and see the long term consequences of this scheme.
