One of the major aspects of India Nepal Cooperation is India's contribution to the development of human resources in Nepal.
To boost human resource development in the country, India handed Nepalese students with over 200 scholarships on Sunday under a bilateral scheme.
In comparison to the number of students receiving the scholarships in 2012, there has been a jump of the number of students receiving the scholarship from 100 to 200 this year.
Subjects from engineering, medicine, agriculture, pharmacology, veterinary sciences, computer application, business administration, music and fine arts have been covered in the scholarships.
The Indian government had launched The Golden Jubilee Scholarship Scheme in 2002 to honour the 50th year of Economic Cooperation between India and Nepal.
According to an Indian embassy statement at a function, the certificates were handed to the 13th batch of the Golden Jubilee Scholarship recipients by Nepal's president Parmananda Jha and Indian ambassador to Nepal Ranjit Rae.
For the MBBS and BE students the amount for the scholarship has been increased from Rs 3000 to Rs 4000 and for the BSc, BBA and BCOM students from Rs 2000 to Rs 3000.
