In a move to encourage academic excellence and foster educational aspirations, the Bihar government has introduced a reward system for students who secure a First Division in the Class 10th Board Examination from government schools within the state. The notification of this initiative was conveyed by the state education department through the X platform (formerly Twitter).
Under this scheme, a cash prize of ₹10,000 will be directly transferred via the Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) mechanism to boys and girls who achieve a First Division in the 10th grade from government schools in Bihar. This noteworthy incentive is being administered under the Mukhyamantri Balak Balika Protsahan Yojna (MBBPY).
It’s worth noting that the Bihar government’s incentive program for Class 10 students attaining a First Division underscores their commitment to cultivating a culture of learning and inspiring students to pursue higher education. However, students aspiring to claim this monetary reward via the MBBPY need to ensure they register on the official scheme website, medhasoft.bih.nic.in, before the deadline of August 30, 2023.
