Raju Kumar, a student with poor financial background, is now a student of Bachelor of Technology in an engineering college in Udaipur, Rajasthan. His journey from his village, Parsouni, to the engineering college was not smooth. The major obstacle was: he had no money to pay his college fees.
He visited Soochna Seva Kendra in Ramnagar block, West Champaran and inquired about government scholarship available for SC/ST students for higher studies. The team briefed him about the scheme and assisted him in applying for the scheme. He lacked a few documents required for applying. The team helped in getting the required documents made and in a few days time, he submitted all the required documents such as caste certificate, income certificate of his father, student’s identification proof and his class 10 and 12 mark-sheets at Kalyan Vibhag.
Since Assistant DPRO was in good terms with the block coordinator of Soochna Seva (West Champaran), Raju’s application process without any delay. In a month, he received Rs 50,000 scholarship that he used to deposit as admission fee for the college. He thanked the team in helping him to realize his dream.
