Maharashtra Government To Provide Free Education For Students Who Lost Parents To Covid

October 15, 2022

The Maharashtra government has announced a complete fee waiver education for students who have lost their parents to Covid, according to Chandrakant Patil, Minister of Higher and Technical Education. For the second year in a row, the decision to provide free education has been made so that students in their graduation and postgraduate programmes are not denied an education due to financial constraints.
In a social media post, Maharashtra's Minister of Higher and Technical Education stated, "The government has decided to waive the entire fee of the students who have lost their parents during the period so that their graduation/post-graduation education is not left incomplete or these students are not deprived of education."

Mr Patil went on to say that the full fee waiver provision should be strictly implemented this year as well, adding, "Keeping in mind the interests of the students, special attention has been given to the universities and aided colleges so that the education of such students is not interrupted or their education is not harmed."
