“Will phd researchers from IIT, IISc will get 70,000 ₹ monthly scholarship ?
You all must have this kind of questions in your mind. Below article will solve this puzzle of yours. Just take a look.”
Union higher education secretary Kewal Kumar Sharma has said, Centre will provide Rs.70,000 as monthly fellowship to those researchers doing their PhDs in Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) or Indian Institute of Science (IISc). Presently researcher-students get Rs.25,000 as monthly scholarship at IITs.
We will provide 2,000 such monthly fellowships across the IIT system and IISc Bengaluru,” Sharma said at the 67th Foundation Day of IIT Kharagpur. This will also enable meritorious researchers, keen to further their research but forced to opt for corporate jobs for higher pay, to pursue their goal, he said.
However, the scholarship recipients can’t do any other job, the senior official said. “The cabinet nod for the proposal should come soon. We are hopeful to start it from the next session,” he said.
IIT-KGP director Partha Pratim Chakrabarti later said, “This is a very good proposal.”
“As part of the research fellowship scheme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we wish the meritorious students who are being forced to leave the country for purely financial reasons stay within the country,” said Union Higher Education Secretary Kewal Kumar Sharma.
