Connecting Villages to Schools: Haryana CM's Free Transportation Plan
Under this scheme, the transport department will offer bus services to villages with over 50 students. For villages with 30 to 40 such students, minibuses will be deployed to cater to their transportation needs. In villages with fewer students, ranging from five to ten, the education department will ensure essential transportation support.

In a significant stride towards enhancing educational accessibility for students in rural Haryana, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has unveiled the 'Chatra Parivahan Suraksha' scheme. This initiative aims to provide free transportation services to school students in various villages of the state.



CM Khattar announced this program during the 'Jan Samvad' event held in Ratangarh village, situated in the Karnal district. The main focus of this scheme is on villages where the number of students traveling to distant schools exceeds 30.



Under this scheme, the transport department will offer bus services to villages with over 50 students. For villages with 30 to 40 such students, minibuses will be deployed to cater to their transportation needs. In villages with fewer students, ranging from five to ten, the education department will ensure essential transportation support.



The 'Chatra Parivahan Suraksha Yojana' is scheduled to commence operations from Ratangarh village, and the roadways department will manage the bus services. These buses will pick up students from the village at 7 a.m., transport them to school, and return them home. Once the scheme is successfully implemented in Karnal, it will expand, covering the entire state. Importantly, these transportation services will be completely free for students, and the expenses will be covered by the district education department.



This initiative has the potential to significantly enhance educational accessibility for a substantial number of school-going children across Haryana. It aligns with the state government's commitment to engaging with marginalized sections of society through programs like 'Jan Samvad.' Over the years, various schemes have benefited nearly one crore people, and the government's primary objective is to improve living standards and enhance the financial stability of underprivileged families.
