“The post-liberalized economy has created vast opportunities and challenges in education and employment in India and abroad. Students in the BC community are often handicapped because of their extreme backwardness and social stigma in accessing the benefits of pursuing studies abroad. The proposal to introduce the Videshi Vidyadh-arana NTR was examined by the government and financial assistance would be provided to students from BC to study abroad under the BC 2016 sub-plan -17. NTR Videshi Vidyadharana will be sanctioned to 1000 students each year, “said the government’s senior secretary, G. Anantha Ramu in GO No. 29.
