OBC Postmatric Hostels

This is a 50% centrally sponsored scheme. The Scheme aims at providing hostel facilities to students belonging to socially and educationally backward classes, especially from ruralareas,to enable them to pursue secondary and higher education.OBC students, hailing from rural background and study in professional colleges far away from their destinations, have to travel a long distance everyday to reach their respective colleges. Due to lack of hostel facilities, it will become inevitable for the students to hire private rooms near to colleges to pursue their studies. The scheme aims to provide better opportunities to these students. Preference will be given to Government/University institutions and reputed private professional institutions having large number of OBC students. At present the running of the hostels are managed by the institutions. But it requires supervision of this Department. 5% of the amount proposed from state fund may be utilized for this purpose.
