He said that apart from the vision of Chief Minister S. Charanjit Singh Channi, he will also ensure that the benefits of all the welfare schemes should reach to eligible beneficiaries at the earliest so that living standard of the poor to poor people should rise in all aspects.Dr. Verka said that the state government has also decided to extend the last date for applying for post-matric scholarship schemes for students on Dr. Ambedkar Scholarship Portal. The cabinet minister informed that earlier, the last date of applying on portal was September 30 but following the persistent demands of students belonging to Scheduled Caste categories, the government has decided to extend the last date to October 25 which would now benefit thousands more needy students.
