Bhopal, Mar 12 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh Government today announced, it will provide coaching facility to Scheduled Caste (SC) students for PET, PMT, and PAT competitive examinations.
SC Welfare and Development Commissioner Shikha Dubey today said students will be given Rs 200 for stationery and Rs 1,500 for books besides a monthly scholarship of Rs 375 for hostel inmates.
A separate centre, exclusively for girls, will be opened if their strength exceeded 20, an official release here said.
