PM Modi Scholarship: Police and Army officials are the backbones of our defense. They are getting meager benefits for their work. They sacrifice their lives for the country. They should get reasonable help for their sacrifices. If they die, then their families are facing critical situations. So, they should get benefits and support to run their lives. Our PM Narendra Modi Ji introduced scholarships to the family members of police personnel, ex-army soldiers and railway protection groups. In the past welfare scheme is only for family members only but now it is availed to both personnel and his family. With this scholarship, many families can lead their lives safely. It is a boon to many. In 1962, the National Defense Fund is formed to eradicate the problems suffered by the family members of ex-army officers, etc.
PM Modi Scholarship 2019-2020
The main reason behind this extension of scheme or scholarship is the terrifying and deadliest Pulwama attack that occurred this year. This tragedy happened when one of the army troops named Adil Ahmad Dar heading towards the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. This incident leads to a loss of 40 Central Reserve Police Force and injury to 35 of them. JeM admitted for this attack. The situation of the families of the dead officers was worse. They desperately need sufficient support from the government. This is now providing scholarships to 5500 members includes wards, widows of armed forces and 2000 scholarships for paramilitary troops, 150 for RPF personnel. This time scholarships are increased a lot when compared to last year. Don’t miss this opportunity.
KENDRIYA SAINIK BOARD
This is a sectarian which includes a group of Ex-serviceman, defense officers. Along with the government this board monitor and conducts welfare schemes and scholarships to the family of ex-army personnel. This scheme was started by PM Manmohan Singh during 2006-2007. But, the above scholarship is different when compared with the present one. During that period it is introduced to fulfil students’ dreams and to support them economically.
But the present scholarship is introduced to take care of the widows, wards welfare. Not only to the army personnel but also his family get benefits. This is done in the part of building a developed nation. This increases the strength of the people joining in army or defense.
