Lower interest rates for girl child education: Maneka to HRD Minister

Views: 1.2K

In an effort to promote girl child education Union Woman and Child Development (WCD) minister Maneka Gandhi has sought for educational loans at concessional rates.

The WCD ministry, together with the HRD and health ministries, runs the NDA’s flagship ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ scheme which aims at ending female foeticide and promoting the education of girls.

Citing that girls are often denied the privilege of higher education or specialised courses only because parents do not wish to take a loan for their daughter’s education, Maneka had written to HRD minister Smriti Irani.

She added that while other incentives are being looked at, the option of providing education loan at concessional rates should also be explored.
