Haryana’s CM Manohar Lal Khattar praised the potential of this scheme while addressing specially-abled students on 6 October 2021. Noting its potential impact on the current educational landscape, he said, “Pragati and Saksham scholarships are capable to change the life of a student. I give special applause to AICTE for their efforts in bringing up girl students and differently-abled students in the field of technical education.” 

The address came when the number of girls receiving the scholarships in Haryana increased from only 2-3 in 2019 to 280 in 2021. Celebrating the welcome change, AICTE Vice-Chairman MP Poonia stated, “Haryana is witnessing a new beginning under the leadership of Hon’ble Chief Minister. The words of Haryana CM will give new insights to these students, and they will have that extra motivation to pursue a technical career. I pray to God that no student in India will face hindrance in pursuing education due to lack of money.
