Duare Sarkar Programme

Duare Sarkar programme (government at doorsteps) is an outreach programme of the West Bengal government, which will continue until 30th January 2021 in four phases. It aims to ensure that no one is left out from availing 11 state-run welfare programmes through camps across the state. These welfare schemes include ‘Kanyashree’, a cash transfer programme for retaining girls in schools and preventing child marriage, ‘Khadya Sathi’ that ensures food security to 90% of the population and ‘Sikhashree’, a one-time grant to SC and ST students of class 5 to 8 to reduce dropout rate.
