On January 12, Madhya Pradesh government said it would bear the expenses of higher studies of students, who score above 85 per cent in higher secondary exams as well as get admission in a national-level educational institution.
“The state government would bear the expenses of higher studies of the students who would score over 85 per cent marks in the higher secondary and get the admission in the educational institutions of national repute,” Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said.
He was speaking while addressing the ‘Vidyarthi Panchayat’ (a gathering of students) at his residence, where he made a number of announcements.
The state government would also help the students who would get the admission in colleges of national repute, but fail to score 85 per cent in higher secondary, he said.
“The government would help such students in getting zero per cent educational loan from the banks,” Chouhan added.
Chief Minister informed that the state government would continue to provide laptops to the students who would score more than 85 per cent in the board exams.
