In Madhya Pradesh, the CM Shivraj cabinet has given its nod to set up Happiness Department in the state. This department will work as knowledge resource centre on the subject of happiness. A state Happiness Institute will also be established under the Happiness Department. With this, Madhya Pradesh is the first state of the country to set up such a Department.
The new department will identify and define the parameters of happiness. It will prepare guidelines for coordination between different departments for propagating happiness in the state. Initially, it will have a budget of three crore 60 lakh rupees. Apart from it, the state government has also decided to give Simhastha Jyoti medals to officers and employees who made security arrangements in Ujjain during the Simhastha.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. Name the Indian state which has got the approval to set up happiness department in the state?
2. What is the initial budget to set up happiness department?
