Kerala govt to consider scholarship to students

The state government will consider the possibility of extending scholarship to medical students belonging to poor economic background studying in self-financing medical colleges, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said in the Assembly.

Vijayan was replying to a notice for an adjournment motion on the alleged police excesses on pro-Congress Kerala Students Union activists during a protest march against the ‘fee hike’ in self-financing medical colleges.

Responding to a demand in this regard by former chief minister Oommen Chandy, Vijayan said government will examine all possibilities to introduce a scholarship scheme on these lines.

Vijayan maintained that fees was fixed by the State Fee Regulatory Commission and “government has not either hiked or decreased the fees.”
