padanamuri project
Education is the key to empowerment and progress, but many individuals from Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST) communities face challenges due to a lack of adequate study facilities at home. Recognizing this obstacle, the government has taken a commendable step by offering financial assistance to members of the SC community to establish study rooms adjacent to their houses. 

This initiative aims to create an environment conducive to learning, allowing students to unlock their full academic potential. Under this program, SC students studying in classes 5 to 12 in various types of schools, including Government, government-aided, special, technical, and central schools, are eligible to apply. 

This initiative represents a significant expansion of the existing Padanamuri program, which previously commenced from the 8th class onwards.
