To empower women, the State Government has announced free higher education for girls from Economically Weaker Sections (EWS), Socially and Economically Backward Classes (SEBC), and Other Backward Classes (OBCs), with family income of 8 LPA or less. Moreover, a decision was also made to waive tuition and exams fees for orphan students, both male and female.

The covered disciplines span higher and technical education, medicine, pharmacy, agriculture, animal husbandry, pisciculture, and dairy development departments. 

New admissions as well students currently pursuing their education degree will also be eligible for the scheme. Notably, students enrolled in private autonomous and those admitted through management or institutional quotas, will not qualify for this scheme.
