We had promised you sometime back that our government would provide credit card facility to our students to help them pursue higher education more easily.
You will be happy to know that we have kept our word. The State Government is happy to launch the STUDENT CREDIT CARD project, which will henceforth cover all your education expenses (with some additional costs as well) to help you achieve all your future education goals. This innovative initiative of the State Government will provide education loan to students for incurring a wide range of expenses, such as course fees, tuition charges, hostel expenses, cost of books, computers, laptops, to name just a few.
All residents of West Bengal, Class X (Ten) and above, pursuing Higher Secondary, UG, PG, Professional and Diploma courses or Doctoral/Post-Doctoral research courses from any recognized school, madrasah, college, university or higher educational institutions within the State, outside Bengal, and even in other countries, can avail the benefits of this scheme, till the age of 40 years.
Candidates studying in different coaching institutes for appearing in competitive examinations like IAS, IPS, WBCS etc will also be entitled to get loan under our Student Credit Card scheme.
Loan upto Rs 10 Lakh, under very easy terms and conditions, at a nominal yearly interest, will be provided to our students under this project and you will have long time – 15 years, to repay your outstanding liabilities. The application process is also very simple – everything will be online.
Our government has always been very caring to the needs our students because we know very well that you are the future of our Nation, who will make Bengal proud one day. Various path-breaking initiatives, like Kanyashree for girl students, Sabooj Sathi, Sikshashree and so many others, have already been taken by us to help you pursue your future dreams, and now we have launched our very own STUDENT CREDIT CARD. It will be your trusted companion in the coming days, that will take care of all your future education needs.
Study well, make your parents and teachers proud of your achievements and bring glory and success to Bengal – my love and blessings will always be with you.
May all your dreams come true!
Stay well, stay healthy.
