The FAST (financial assistance for Students of Telagnana ) of TRS govt replacing the tuition fee reimbursement of YSR regime is nothing but a false scheme says the BJP
BJP chief official spokesman Sudhish Rambhotla said the Telagnana Government should not differentiate between students just for sake of fee reimbursements and to reconsider its decision on 1956 as the cutoff year for students. . ‘ The FAST is in reality a false assistance scheme as it was instilling fear among the students of losing their academic year.’ he said .
According to latest statistics released vt the Telangana Govt , 28 lakh students ( Rs.4500 crore in fee amount ) got Tuition fee benefits in 2013-14 of which only 14.84 lakhs students from Telangana .’ But of this only 20 % i.e about 3 lakhs were genuine students and rest were bogus ” .
If 1956 is taken as criteria of nativity of parents – only 8 lakhs will be beneficiaries and 80 percent of them will be only BE/B.Tech, MBA, MCA and B Pharma He said while 39,000 Andhra students were in Telangana, there were 18,000 Telangana students in Andhra . ‘ However as per the new criteria over 10 lakh students will become ineligible for nativity in Telangana and also Andhra as well “
