Namo Saraswati Yojana in Gujarat Budget 2024-25

Finance Minister presented Gujarat Budget 2024-2025 on 2 February 2024 in which FM announced to start 2 new schemes namely Namo Saraswati and Namo Lakshmi Yojana. While "Namo Saraswati Yojana" aims to encourage students to pursue science stream education, "Namo Lakshmi Scheme" targets universal enrolment in secondary education by offering financial assistance to girls up to class 12th.

While presenting Gujarat Budget 2024-25, Finance Minister said "The 21st century is an age of science and technology in which IT and associated technologies touch all aspects of life. New opportunities are also opening up in high-value jobs in technology-related sectors, for which, Science education (STEM) is critical. To incentivise increased enrolment in STEM subjects, I propose the Namo Saraswati scheme".
FM added "Under this scholarship scheme, students enrolling in the science stream in higher secondary schools (from low and middle-income households) will be assisted with Rs. 10,000 annually while studying in class 11 and Rs. 15,000 while studying in class 12. This assistance of Rs. 25,000 over two years to students is expected to increase the number of students enrolled in science subjects from 2 lakh to 5 lakh annually over the next five years".

Amount Distribution under Namo Saraswati Scheme in Gujarat

Under the scheme, a student who clears the Class 10 board examination with more than 50% marks will get a total scholarship of Rs. 25,000 to take the science stream in Class 11-12 in affiliated schools of Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB).

Eligibility Criteria under Namo Saraswati Yojna

Students who have passed class 10 and taken Science stream in class 11-12 from government and aided schools will be eligible for scholarships irrespective of family income limit. However, students of private schools will be eligible for the scholarship, based on a family income limit of Rs 6 lakh.

Integration of 3 Schemes in Namo Saraswati Merit Scholarship Scheme

"Students availing scholarships under Namo Lakshmi, Gyan Setu, and Gyan Sadhana Yojana will be eligible to get the benefit of Vigyan Sadhana Scholarship Yojana as an additional benefit," an education official stated. Along with this, all three merit scholarship schemes will be integrated under the Namo Saraswati Merit Scholarship Scheme. These are the:-

Meanwhile, the allocation for the education sector, comprising school, and higher and technical education, has seen a gradual rise over the past seven years. With Rs. 55,114 crore set aside for the sector, the allocation has nearly doubled from the Rs. 27,500 crore provisioned in the 2018-19 budget.

The budget for school education under the sector has also risen over the same period, with the current allocation more than double of that in the 2018-19 budget. The school education budget has increased from Rs. 23,897 crore to Rs. 49,295 crore in the past seven years.
