Hyderabad News: Since 2008, we know that there is fee reimbursement scheme for SC/ST/BC communities from the government. But the present scenario is clear enough that the government is in extreme debts regarding the power shortage across the state. So it is heard that the congress party is rethinking about its reimbursement scheme. And this doesn’t sound good at all.
The major voting for congress is from these families who are benefitted from these financial schemes. The families depend on these schemed for their children’ educational purpose. Now the rethinking is a dangerous step for the ruling party.
From the past 2 years, Muslim community also saw increase in the number of students wanting to pursue professional courses only after the govt introduced this reimbursement scheme. After being interviewed, certain financially backward family members stated that it is practically impossible for them to pay the fee; not even half the amount. Zafar Javeed, Nursat Jahan and others from their locality were interviewed in this regard.
According to the study made by the govt, 1.6 million Muslim students are benefiting from this scheme for the purpose of their education. The maximum number among these students is pursuing professional courses and very few degree courses. Former minister Mohammad Ali Shabbir and Union Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad are trying to negotiate with the education ministers in this regard.
