The Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) has announced 100 per cent fee waiver scheme for north eastern students.
The scheme is available under company secretaries’ foundation and executive programme for a limited period. ICSI president Shyam Agrawal said, students from the north eastern region may avail the benefits of fee waiver scheme by registering under the ‘Swavlamban-Samagra Shiksha, Samagra Vikas’, from June 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018.
In line with Central Government’s guidelines, the policy is for inclusive growth of all parts of the country, Agrawal said adding “Through this proactive move, the institute is expecting to empower the students of the region.”
It will also increase the representation of students from the north east and the increased number of students may result into set up of an examination centre in the state.
