Aspirants who are willing to make it big and are ambitious enough to get to where they dream of would breathe easy at the knowledge of this scheme. Among the various expenses that arise while opting for a higher education course, let not hostel fee prove to be another thorn in the side.
To ease students from the burden of hostel fees, the State Government of Maharashtra decided to launch a scheme which inherently aims to encourage higher education. The scheme is called the Punjabrao Deshmukh Scheme and it will provide hostel fee to the children of under-privileged families and registered labourers who aspire to make it big in life.
Objective of the scheme:
The prime objective of the scheme is to get more students from the BLP (Below the Poverty Line) segment to pursue higher education. Sound education and backed by degrees is the only way a child can bag a job and improve their financial situation.
Finances in place for the scheme:
The Maharashtra government acknowledges the multitude of people under the Below Poverty Line segment and therefore has kept a whopping amount of Rs 1000 crores aside for aspirants who wish to pursue higher education.
The State Government funds this scheme for the implementation of educational strategies across the state.
Once the pressure of affording a roof over your head is taken care of, a student would only have one thing to focus on – studies. And academic excellence, in such stress-free environments, is a definite by-product.
