- TTD agreed for Vedic varsity proposal as less number of students joined courses in previous academic year
- Cash deposit scheme will encourage more students to take admission: Pola Bhaskar
The TTD decided to provide cash incentives for the students, who are pursuing courses in the Sri Venkateswara Vedic University in the present academic year. The TTD Trust Board gave consent for the cash incentive proposal submitted by the varsity officials.
Earlier, there was no cash incentive scheme for undergraduate and postgraduate students of the Vedic university, located in Tirupathi, Andhra Pradesh.
The varsity officials were shocked to know only 100 students taking admission in the previous academic year when 450 seats are available.
To ensure more students opt for Vedic courses, TTD JEO Pola Bhaskar had put a proposal before the TTD EO Anil Kumar Singhal for providing cash incentives to students of Vedic varsity.
Members of the TTD Trust Board have agreed to the proposal and sanctioned the required funds to launch the cash deposit scheme.
Pola Bhaskar said the varsity would deposit Rs 3 lakh into the account of a student, who joins BA (Sastri) course and Rs 4 lakh for students opting Kalpa and Vedangam courses.
Similarly, the TTD would deposit Rs 1 lakh on student name, who take admission into PG (Acharya) course. Likewise, Rs 1.5 lakh for students joining the PG Kalpa and Vedangam courses. The varsity is also providing cash incentives for MPhil and PhD students.
Meanwhile, the Vedic varsity has set up the Balaji Vedic Pariposhaka Trust to receive funds and donations.
Speaking to The Hans India, Pola Bhaskar has stated that the varsity launched cash deposit scheme to attract more students as less number of students had joined the courses of the Vedic varsity in the last five years.
