There are a lot of schemes available from the government but more often than not, we do not have information about those and hence miss out on crucial opportunities. It is wise to keep checking numerous websites and government plans for such changes and benefits.
Although the fact remains that underprivileged sections of society suffer from the unavailability of resources and hence it is quite a challenge for them to keep themselves updated on the various developments deployed in their favor.
In such cases, it is the duty of the conscious urban public, various NGOs to bring these aids to light and help the marginalized classes to cross the margin and enter into prominence. It might be as well said, that consistent application of such scholarships and other educational opportunities might turn the wheel around if applied correctly and bring about a more equalized society in our midst. Such imaginations are, of course, quite away from realization, yet determined efforts might just pave the path to bridge the gap in the literacy ratio of India.
It is hence advised to students to keep looking out for convenient opportunities and make the most of trying times and in order to emerge victoriously. It is but, in our hands to control our fates no matter what condition we were brought in.
All The Best!
