The government allocated Rs 4900 crores to implement the scheme for the 2020-2021 session. Many students in Andhra Pradesh have remarkable academic scores and cannot pay their fees.

They don’t have sufficient money to pay a fee or even eat properly. So, with this scheme, the CM wants to help those students who cannot pay a fee for their studies.

Jagananna Vidya Deevena started implementation on 28th April 2020. According to reports, nearly 14 Lakh students will get the fee reimbursement.

The government sanctioned Rs 4900 crores, in which the previous due of Rs 1880 crores was added. The sanctioned amount will be directly transferred to the bank accounts of the student’s mother.
