SC/ST research scholars of Mysore Varsity to get a grant, thanks to Harshavardhan

*The association of research scholars has thanked Harshavardhan for his understanding of their problem and quickly resolving it.

Nanjangud (Mysuru): MLA B Harshavardhan has been successful in getting research grants for all the Schedule Caste/Tribe research scholars at the University of Mysore. His positive intervention has ensured that the university will release grants for an additional 60 research scholars from various departments.

In all, the university has 80 research scholars belonging to the SC/ST categories. They are spread over 56 departments. At present, only 20 of the 80 research scholars are getting grants. A majority of them are economically weak. The research scholars had requested Harshavardhan to get them grants. He acted quickly and within 72 hours he got an assurance from the authorities concerned to help the research scholars.

Recently, SC/ST students had sought Harshavardhan’s intervention regarding this matter. He immediately acted. He met M P Kumarswamy, Chairman of the SC/ST Committee of the Legislative Assembly, on September 2. In addition, he submitted letters to Social Welfare Minister B Sriramulu, Backward Classes Welfare Minister Kota Srinivas Poojary and the Commissioner, Karnataka State Commission for SCs and STs. He did not stop at that. Because of his follow-up, a team of officials from the Social Welfare Department visited Mysore University’s SC/ST Cell on September 4. The team examined the records regarding the grants and advised the university on the modalities to be followed for sanctioning grants. He asked the university officials why grants meant for SCs/STs had not been utilised. He also took up the matter with the vice chancellor.

Now a formal communication regarding sanctioning of grants to all the research scholars is awaited while in-principal approval has been given. The association of research scholars has thanked Harshavardhan for his understanding of their problem and quickly resolving it.
