India is one of the worst affected countries from COVID-19, about 32 million people in India were driven into poverty by the pandemic last year, according to the Pew Research Centre, accounting for a majority of the 54 million who slipped out of the middle class worldwide. Every sector was worst hit and education sector was no different.
Education sector has long lasting effect on economy and it is as important as health but when it comes to situation like today where most population is struggling for basic needs of food and health due to job loss or lockdown, education has become the least important for many.
During this hard time such initiatives are no doubt going to benefit education sector by benefitting meritorious candidates especially from the weaker section of the society on the basis of pure merit. Further, zero formalities and 100% swift online process helps to avoid infection, bureaucratic red-tapism and corruption at all level from application to distribution of scholarship. We may expect more from government in the field of education in future.
