PUNJAB NEWS EXPRESS | August 01, 2022 12:13 AM

ABOHAR: The reason for decline in the number of Admissions in Punjab is the previous Congress Government because they did not pay a single penny for the year 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20. Bhagwant Mann Govt. will streamline the implementation of Post Matric Scholarship (PMS) & would ensure that no SC students will be deprived of education.

This was said by Dr. Baljit Kaur, Cabinet Minister, Social Security, Women and Child Development, Punjab during the inauguration ceremony of Aryans Scholarship Mela organised by Aryans Group of Colleges, Rajpura, Near Chandigarh at Abohar Palace. Sh. Akash Bansal, IAS, SDM Fazilka as Guest of Honour. Dr. Anshu Kataria, Chairman, Aryans Group of Colleges presided over the function. Sh. Deep Kamboj, Aam Aadmi Party & Sh. Gagan Chugh, CEO, Bombay Institute, Abohar was also present.

"As soon as I took the position of minister, our Govt immediately paid the amount 1.80 Cr as 40% state share to around 1.90 lakh SC students of Punjab for the academic year 2021-22. In 2022-23 also we will make timely payment to SC students so that they get uninterrupted education:, she stated.

While expressing Gratitude to the Minister, Dr. Anshu Kataria said that under her visionary guidance two months back an initiative of "Each One, Reach One, Teach One was taken to choose needy & deserving students of Abohar, Malout, Fazilka etc. Today we have selected around 100 students belonging to categories including General & SC/ ST to study in Aryans Group of Colleges in various job oriented courses including B.Tech, Law, Pharma, Nursing, Paramedical, Management, Education, Agriculture etc.
