The government of Orissa has introduced a unique educational loan scheme for the students who are financially weak and want to pursue their higher education. This project is launched by Mr. Naveen Patnaik, honourable chief minister of Orissa on 27th June 2016. This educational loan Yojana is named as the Kalinga Shiksha Sathi Yojana, and it will provide the education loan at only 1% interest rates.
The programme is launched for those students who are not capable of going for their graduate studies because of the lower family income. For the first time, under this project, education loan will be provided on such a small interest rate. It is very tough, to get an education loan these days for low-income families because of interest rates. This Yojana seems to be very useful for all those students who have dreams of continuing their higher education from best universities but cannot proceed because of their poverty. According to the announcement of Orissa government, the scheme will be dedicated to Biju Babu who was one the greatest achiever in the field of science from Kalinga. The government has passed a budget of 500 Crores for this educational scheme.
