While distributing the cheques to students, Sisodia said, “It is the responsibility of the Delhi Government to ensure that talented and ready-to-work students do not miss out on the opportunity to study. It is the responsibility of the Delhi government to look after children who are progressing in the field of higher education and not stop studying due to lack of funds.”

Over 13,000 students have received benefits amounting to Rs 87 crore under the scheme in the last three years.

The deputy chief minister added, “We have been included in the list of the top universities of the country, but the day is not far when the higher education institutes of Delhi will be included among the top institutes of the world. We have to persistently work hard to achieve this.”

  • The Delhi government gave Rs 14.16 crore to 2,429 students in 2018-19.
  • 3,760 students were provided Rs. 24 crores in 2019-20.
  • To avail of the benefits under the scheme, a student must secure at least 60% marks in graduation.
  • The scheme provides 100% financial assistance to the children of ration cardholder families.
  • The students whose annual family income is less than Rs 2.50 lakh are offered 50% financial assistance.
  • The students whose annual family income is more than Rs 2.50 lakh but less than Rs 6 lakh are provided 25% financial assistance.

Sisodia’s Appeal to Students
