“e-Scholarship” is transforming the delivery of scholarships to the students across the state – with an objective to bring the socially and economically backward students on the mainstream development track. Previously, the entire process of scholarship application by students, approval by colleges/welfare officer and disbursal was a manual process – there was no automation. This project is the first of its kind being implemented in the state and its outcomes are ensuring complete transparency in disbursement of scholarships. “Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana (AABY)” has made it easier to provide insurance to landless labourers across the state of Maharashtra. Through the AABY portal, the process of application by beneficiaries and approvals by district administration has been automated and brought the much-needed efficiency in monitoring and tracking the status of applications and fund disbursal. Form filling is easy and the process is devoid of department delays, thus also facilitating insurance inclusion.
