The main objectives of CMSSY are to provide flexible pool of resources for maintenance of govt schools and colleges and bridge the critical infrastructural gap in technology and to improve the quality of education imparted in schools and colleges by giving flexible funds in the districts. The main objectives of ADGY are to identify the intellectual students studying in govt schools, to promote science subjects in the state and to promote meritorious students who wish to study outside the state and to provide mentoring to the meritorious students for excelling in their field. The execution of the scheme will be done by the Department of Secondary Education by conducting a talent hunt for all APST and non-APST students studying in govt schools for class VI & IX separately in Mathematics, Science and English Skills.

The top 10 students of each district will be identified in both the classes and will be awarded a merit scholarship of Rs 2000 each per month through DBT for two years. Further, the Class IX students who qualify the talent hunt will also be provided with laptops under the scheme. However, the scheme is not applicable to govt aided schools, private schools and Central govt schools like KVs & JNVs at all.

The main objective under CMAPY is extension of Smart Classroom programme and development of Residential Model School.
