Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, M.K. Stalin announced that the state government would take care of the expenses of those students who have been admitted to professional and other courses under the 7.5% government school students quota. He was speaking at a function organized at the Anna University campus to provide allotment letters to a few students who have been admitted to various programmes under the 7.5% government school student quota.

Chief Minister said that the fee for counselling, tuition and hostel fee would be borne by the state government and called upon the students to make use of the opportunity.

The government decision is expected to benefit 10,000 students who will be admitted to engineering programmes and to 350 other students who will be admitted to other professional programmes like fisheries, law and agriculture in the current academic year.

Stalin said that the current government period will be considered as the golden era of technical education in the state just as Kamaraj’s rule was hailed as the golden era of school education in Tamil Nadu. He said that Kalaignar Karunanidhi’s period was praised for promoting collegiate education.

Stalin while speaking on the occasion said, “ It would give me the greatest of happiness if in a few years a person meets me in a remote village and says, It is because of the Government Order you issued that I got placed in a big company or that I have established a company.”

Chief Minister also distributed the allotment orders to a few government school students.

Minister for School Education, Anbil Mahesh Poyyamozhi, Higher education minister, K. Ponmudi, State health minister, Ma Subramanian were also present in the programme.
