As the second wave of Covid-19 has hit the country, leaving many families without breadwinners, the government of Uttarakhand has decided to provide financial aid to students in the state who have lost their parents as a result of Covid-19.

Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat proposed a programme for the education and employment of children who lost their parents due to the Covid-19 epidemic on Saturday, following in the footsteps of numerous state governments throughout the nation.

The state government would also look after their education and set aside 5% of government employment for them under the programme, according to the statement. In total, the state has reported over three lakh cases and around 5,600 deaths.

As the death toll in India has risen dramatically in the last month, many state governments have stepped up to give financial help and free schooling to children who have lost their parents or guardians as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Madhya Pradesh was one of the first governments to do so, with Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announcing that youngsters who have lost their parents will get free education up to graduation level, as well as a monthly stipend of Rs 5000.

Following Madhya Pradesh’s lead, many other governments, including Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Odisha, and Gujarat, have opted to give financial assistance to orphaned students as a result of the Covid-19 epidemic. Other assistance initiatives for Covid-19-affected families have been announced as well.

Sonia Gandhi, a Congress politician, recently sent Prime Minister Narendra Modi a letter requesting that he encourage the national government to offer free education to youngsters who have lost their parents as a result of the epidemic that has swept the country.
