AP Jagananna Videshi Vidya Deevena (JVVD) Installment Transfer

జగనన్న విదేశీ విద్యాదీవెన కింద ఈ ఏడాది ప్రపంచంలోనే టాప్‌ 200 విదేశీ యూనివర్శిటీల్లో అడ్మిషన్లు పొందిన 213 మంది విద్యార్ధులకు మొదటి విడత సాయంగా రూ.19.95 కోట్లను క్యాంప్‌ కార్యాలయంలో బటన్‌ నొక్కి విద్యార్ధుల ఖాతాల్లో జమ చేసిన సీఎం శ్రీ వైయస్‌.జగన్‌.

With a view to allow the meritorious students from the economically weaker sections to realise their dreams of studying in overseas universities, the state government has designed the JVVD in such a way that they aim for seats in top universities in the world. 
"The scheme was mired controversies during the previous TDP regime as it was designed to favour the select few and rich. We have redesigned the scheme to help the meritorious children from the poor following the chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s instructions," said social welfare minister. He said that AP govt. would implement the JVVD to all eligible students in saturation mode and in utmost transparent manner. Every year selections will be made twice (for fall season & spring season) as per the admissions schedule for Foreign Universities.

Selection of Students in Jagananna Videshi Vidya Deevena Yojana

"Selection of students is done by a state level selection committee headed by the principal secretaries of concerned departments. Getting admissions in any of the top 200 Universities as per QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) world university rankings has been made mandatory to ensure quality education," explained social welfare minister. He mentioned "TDP government granted paltry sum of Rs. 15 lakhs to SCs/STs and Rs. 10 Lakhs for others. In fact, the TDP government had left the students in lurch by not clearing dues to the tune of Rs 318 crore since 2016-17".

Benefits (Financial Assistance) in JVVD Scheme

Deputy CM said that 100% fee reimbursement of tuition fee to SC/ST/BC/Minority students up to Rs. 1.25 crore and up to Rs. 1 crore to remaining students, would be granted for those who secured ranks in top 100 universities. Similarly, tuition fee up to Rs. 75 lakh to SC/ST/BC/Minority Students and Rs. 50 Lakhs or 50% of tuition fee, whichever is less to the other students, who got admitted in the top 101-200 QS ranking foreign universities would be given.
