NEW DELHI: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar interacted with girl students selected under the Pragati scholarship scheme and specially-abled students under the Saksham scholarship on October 6, 2021.

Interacting with students, Haryana Chief Minister 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.”

“Haryana government gives predominant consideration to technical education, and we hope the National Education Policy could bring revolutionary changes in this sector,” he said.

He further said that the Haryana government believes in advancing technical education, and made it clear that the state has already started to give financial assistance and pension to students.

Both these scholarship schemes of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) have played a crucial role in advancing technical education among girl students and specially-abled students in India.

Two years ago, only two to three girl students from Haryana used to get this Pragati scholarship. However, 280 students have received the scholarships this year.

AICTE Vice-Chairman MP Poonia said, “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 hinders in pursuing education due to lack of money.”

Srishti, a student at the Govt Engineering College, Karnal who received the Pragati scholarship said, “I am very glad to receive this scholarship. Considering the financial condition of my family, I consider it a privilege that I have received this scholarship. I should thank AICTE, its chairman, and all other people who helped me receive this scholarship.”
