Quality Education for Scheduled Caste Students in India

To ensure quality education for school students in India, the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment has launched a new program called the ‘Scheme for Residential Education for Students in High Schools in Targeted Areas’ (SHRESHTA).

Program Objective

The aim of this scheme is to provide high-quality school education to students belonging to Scheduled Castes (SC) using various methods. It also aims to expand the reach of government development initiatives in SC-dominant areas within the education sector.

Choice of Institutions

The scheme will be implemented in selected grant-in-aid institutions run by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and residential high schools that offer high-quality education.

Schooling under CBSE/State Board Affiliated Private Residential Schools

In this mode, meritorious students will be admitted to selected private schools affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and State Boards. The selection process will be conducted through the National Entrance Test for SHRESHTA (NETS), organized by the National Testing Agency (NTA).

Admission Details

Selected students will be admitted to private residential schools in the 9th and 11th grades, allowing them to complete their education up to the 12th standard.

Eligibility Criteria

Under this scheme, around 3000 SC students with parents’ annual income up to 2.5 lakh are selected annually based on their merit.

Benefits of the Scheme

– For students admitted under this scheme, their entire fee, including tuition fees and hostel fees, will be waived off. The admissible fees for each class are as follows:

  • 9th: ₹1,00,000
  • 10th: ₹1,10,000
  • 11th: ₹1,25,000
  • 12th: ₹1,35,000

– Students can also avail the benefit of a bridge course within the selected schools, which targets their individual academic requirements and aids in their adjustment to the school environment. The cost of the bridge course, equivalent to 10% of the annual fee, is also covered under the scheme. The progress of these students will be closely monitored by the Ministry of Education.

Admission in NGO Operated Schools

In this mode of education, schools and hostels run by voluntary organizations (VOs) and NGOs will offer education up to class 12.

Schools and hostels receiving grant-in-aid and demonstrating satisfactory performance will continue to benefit under this mode.
