AURANGABAD: Integrating the tribal population into the mainstream remains one of the biggest challenges for any Government.
Following the new Integrated Tribal Development Department Scheme for the year 2016-17, the tribal students who want to continue primary education would be assisted to take admission in reputed English medium residential schools in the area.
The department has invited applications from the candidates addressing from the four districts of Marathwada region, namely Aurangabad, Jalna, Latur and Beed, for the execution of the scheme.
The interested applicants will have to take the forms from the office situated at the Azad Chowk and submit them before April 20. The authorities have also requested the students to give all the essential documents like medical certificate, caste certificate, and consent letter of parents, passport size photographs, and bonafide certificate.
The authorities maintained that the department would take care of all the costs of the eligible students and the children of a single mother, penniless, divorced mothers and the students belonging to below Poverty Line (BPL) would be given first choice.
By this scheme, the department aims to bring the kids from tribal families into the main stream and introduce them to the excellence and quality education learning system.
