Distribution of Free Bicycles to Students of Class X

The Distribution of Free Bicycles to Students of Class X is started by Odisha State Government In order to reduce the dropout rate and improve efficiency in the education system. The Government of Odisha has come up with a novel idea of distributing free bi-cycles to students of Class X. The scheme was envisaged keeping in mind the students residing in hilly and inaccessible areas of the state, who find it difficult to attend school due to restricted mobility. Besides improving school attendance, cycles also encourage students to participate in extra and co-curricular activities. The basic objective of this state-funded scheme is to enhance enrollment and ensure retention of students in schools by providing a mode of transport which would make students self-reliant and also encourage them to complete secondary education. The scheme also facilitates the deprived section of society to complete the secondary stage of education
