Previously, the state govt. had launched a Conditional Cash Transfer project in 10 district on trial basis.

Identification of Children of Labourers
While online applications for UP Bal Shramik Vidya Yojana would be invited online at a later date, the task of identification of such children of labourers has now been given to the labour department. The UP Labour Department will manage the UP Child Labourers Education Scheme and its beneficiaries. This scheme is important as UP is reportedly among those states which have high number of child labour related cases. Thus, the Yogi Adityanath led UP government has decided that cash transfer under the new schem would be conditional i.e given only when set conditions are met.
CM has also given directions that development schemes of the Centre and the state government should be implemented on one hand while providing employment to labourers and workers on the other hand. This would help in “navnirman (reconstruction)” of the entire Uttar Pradesh state.
