The state government on Sunday launched a mobile application for the Kanyashree Prakalpa that would help guardians, heads of institutions and officials at various levels to keep track of status of application, lodge grievances, view various activities or events on Kanyashree.
The state government also celebrated the third anniversary of the ‘Kanyashree’ project, which provides financial support to girl children for their education.
Amit Mitra, state finance and industry and commerce minister said that Kanyashree project has been acclaimed worldwide. He also pushed the button to generate certificates for over three lakh Kanyashree girls. “These can be availed by the girls by logging into the dedicated website for the purpose,” he said.
A colourful function was organised at the Netaji Indoor Stadium, which was attended by thousands of school girls from all over the state. Several performances like dance dramas, martial arts and folk dances were presented by the girls from several districts.
