Gyan Deepika Scheme Details
Government of Assam has launched Gyan Deepika Scheme in the Assam Budget 2020 in view to enhance the education of Girls and the lower-income families. Most students can get an education because they can’t effort the uniform or admission fees. So, this scheme is for those who want higher education but can’t effort the expenses.
