Department Of Social Welfare is working like a bridge between marginalized population of the society and main stream. For this Educational upliftment, Economic upliftment alongwith implementation of Social security and welfare schemes is being taken up on priority basis. State is increasing coverage of such schemes every year. Let us hope that state will reach every needy and marginalized person in future.
