The Telangana government has decided to provide New Year gifts for students of Kasthurba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya .They will be provided with grooming kits. This would replace the existing practice of granting a monthly stipend of Rs 100 towards purchase of grooming and make up articles.
Each kit would include four bath soaps, two detergent soaps, 24 shampoo sachets, a 175 ml hair oil bottle, a comb, 50 gm face powder box, 100 gm toothpaste tube, a set of toothbrush and tongue cleaner, a packet of bindis, ribbons, hairbands, hand wash and a mosquito repellent. This lit was decided as the monthly stipend of Rs 100 was insufficient. The kits would be provided on a quarterly basis starting from January 1st.
