SC/ST hostels to admit 1,500 more students
Special Correspondent

Chief Minister Jayalalithaa has sanctioned increase in the capacity of
student hostels for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes by 1,500
from the current academic year.

It will entail additional expenditure of about Rs.1.18 crore every year.

A release issued on Saturday stated that the hike in the hostels'
capacity was approved keeping in mind that many students could not be
accommodated in the hostels as a large number of students belonging to
SC/ST and Christian Adi-Dravidar community had applied.

The Chief Minister also ordered rise in the monthly allowance for
incidental expenses from Rs.25 to Rs.50 per student for school hostels
and Rs.35 to Rs.75 per student for college hostels.

This will benefit 13,013 students of college hostels and 1,07,002
school hostels.
