What you need to know about studying in Kerala
Kerala is an important teaching destination for students from all across the world.
However, the state is also home to some of the world’s highest student debt burdens, and many students are stuck in their own personal debt spiral.
In this article, we will take a look at the educational challenges that students face when it comes to learning in Kerala.
We will also take a closer look at how students across the country are managing their debt in different circumstances.
In the past few years, students from the state have started to pay for the costs of higher education in Kerala through tuition fees.
Many students from Kerala are now able to get their first semester tuition fee waived, while others are able to pay up to Rs1,500 per semester.
However in the last few months, a few states have come up with a new scheme to ease the burden of paying tuition fees for students.
Here, the government has also extended free textbooks to students from other states.
The Keralite Student Assistance Scheme, or KSA, is one of the schemes that Kerala has been working on to ease student debt.
KSA is a scheme that offers students the opportunity to borrow a portion of their tuition fees from a private lender, which the students can then use to pay their textbooks.
The scheme has been launched in some of Kerala’s most popular colleges and universities, including Kanakam, Puducherry, the IAS College of Education and Sciences, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), and the IIT-Kerala.
This is the first time that the government of Kerala has started offering free textbooks for students in this manner.
The initiative is also being implemented in several other states, including Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, Kerala State and Madurai.
The aim of the scheme is to ease and support students in managing their personal debt, while also supporting students who are working towards a degree in their chosen field of study.
The first students enrolled under the scheme are enrolled in the IISc and the IT department of IIT, while the other 50 students are enrolled with the KESP and the Pune Technical College.
According to a report by the state government, the KSA has so far provided free textbooks and other educational support to students in the following fields: education, engineering, technology, science, mathematics and technology (including technology and computing) for the first-year students and students with the highest debt burden; and a financial aid package for those students who had financial difficulties in the past.
The plan is to expand the scheme to other colleges and Universities.
According a report from the National Council of Higher Education (NCHE), the plan is also aimed at encouraging more students from different backgrounds to study in the state.
The number of students enrolled in KSA in the first two months of the plan has grown by over 3,500,000 from 6,700,000 in March to 17,800,000 this month.
KSR’s government, however, says the number of enrolled students in KSR will not go up beyond 5,000,000 for the next six months.
According the IESC, there are approximately 3.25 lakh students enrolled at IITs in Kerala, with a population of about 4.2 crore.
The government has decided to extend free textbooks on a pilot basis for students who have paid their loans and are enrolled at an IIT.
However to address the problem of students who cannot pay their loan, the PIL has been filed by the Education Minister P.V. Jayanthi, which seeks the government to extend the free textbooks scheme to students who were enrolled in an IIS and enrolled at a different institution in the same academic year.
The PIL seeks an extension of the free textbook scheme, for the duration of the current financial year, until March 31, 2019.
The PIL also seeks to extend it for all students enrolled on the basis of their credit ratings.
The ministry has not specified how it will ensure that students who need free textbooks are not left out of the program.
It has asked students to sign a consent form to ensure that the programme is extended to them.
The KSR government, in a statement, said it will continue to look into ways to ensure the students enrolled for free textbooks get the help they need.
The statement added that the KSR Government will continue with efforts to improve the financial aid scheme, including the provision of free textbooks, as well as the educational facilities for students, in the current academic year and beyond.
In a press release, the Kerala government said that the new scheme will enable students from across the state to study at a higher level.
The government will continue efforts to ensure a seamless transition to higher education for students of all ages and from all backgrounds.
