Top government minority scholarship for Indian students

“Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another.”

A quote by G. K. Chesterton, an English writer, poet and philosopher is a simple but have strong meaning. Through education, only we can create a much soothing aura for the next generation. In today’s world, the education is necessary for every walk of life. Even a simple labor class has to know the basic calculation so that no one can cheat on him. By education, only we can demolish the caste system. Keeping all the things in minds, every year government disbursed an amount nearly equals to INR 19, 000 crore in education and especially in minority scholarship. Yes, it is a huge amount but many of us are unaware of this. The reason might be only 35 percent (approx) Indians know how to use the internet and only about 28 percent of the population can understand some English and all the information and the application process is given on the website.
