R. Sethuram, Vice-Chancellor of SASTRA University, has written a letter to Prakash Javadekar, Minister of Human Resource and Development suggesting him to provide a scholarship of Rs. 3,000 per month to students who clear the national-level B.Ed examination.

He requested Prakash Javadekar to think of introducing scholarships either for all students who qualify the national-level exam or top 1000 students. The scholarships shall be offered to the students who seek admission to B.A., B.Ed or B.Sc., B.Ed programmes which are approved by NCTE.

Earlier, HRD Ministry proposed national-level B.Ed examination for the aspirants who wish to become a teacher. The students need to qualify the exit exam to get a B.Ed tag. However, the proposal related to exit exam might not go well with the colleges and students. The government proposed exit exam for MBBS as well as engineering courses which received negative feedback from most of the institutions and students.
