100 Dalit students to be provided financial assistance by the AAP government


To fund higher studies of around 100 Dalit students overseas, the Aam Aadmi Party government is coming up with a scheme where it will provide financial assistance up to Rs 10 lakh for a two-year course & up to Rs 20 lakh for a four-year course. Under the scheme, meritorious students interested to pursue M Phil & PhD courses in the fields of art, agriculture, law, medicine, and engineering, etc, can apply.

Delhi’s SC/ST Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam told that the proposal is likely to be put before the cabinet soon. He said it is happening for the first time in Delhi and informed that a family income ceiling of Rs 6 lakh is expected.

The AAP government launched the Jai Bhim Mukhyemantri Pratibha Vikas Yojana, last year, under which Dalit students can avail free coaching for various exams. Out of 107 students who got free coaching for engineering and medical entrance exams, 35 have qualified for JEE Main and NEET this year.

Under the National Overseas Scholarship for Scheduled Caste Students, the Union Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment also provides financial support to 100 candidates each year.
