The Tamil Nadu government has decided to cover the full cost of vocational training for public school students who gain admission under the newly created 7.5% quota, CM MK Stalin said today.

By passing a new law, the DMK government of Tamil Nadu created a 7.5% quota in engineering admissions for students who studied in state public schools in grades 6 to 8.

Chief Minister MK Stalin, who chaired the event in which he handed over the award letters, said it was the DMK government that canceled the entrance examination system for engineering admissions and also said the state was also waging a legal battle against NEETs.

Stalin wants students to become job creators

“To get to this level, I know how much and your parents would have sacrificed. They dream of you becoming big in the future and I ask you to make their dreams come true as a brother,” he told the students.

Deputy Stalin also said that the goal of students should not only be to find jobs, but rather to become job creators.

CM Stalin then said that 69% of students studying in public schools are from rural areas and that his government is keen to create opportunities for students from rural areas.

“Entrance exams were a barrier for students from rural areas to study engineering and medicine which were canceled by Kalaignar,” he said.

CM Stalin then said that as he prepared to attend the function, he watched a female student on television say that she had been admitted, but that he was worried about how she would pay her fees. .

“I am here to announce that those who have reached admission below the 7.5% quota, their tuition fees, accommodation fees and even counseling fees will be paid by the government,” Stalin said , ending his speech.

More than 10,000 students who have studied in state public schools will benefit from the new quota system and the state’s decision to pay their fees.
