The Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) launched a special Fee Waiver Scheme in CS programme for the students of North Eastern States, with the aim to achieve a growth process in which people from different walks of life can participate and benefit. This is inline with the Government of India latest policy key element ‘inclusive growth’.
The ICSI has launched a Fee Waiver Scheme for students from North Eastern States of India, with an objective of the inclusive growth of people from different parts of country and as part of its social responsibility initiatives.
Shri Sarbananda Sonowal, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Assam earlier launched the ICSI Fee Waiver Scheme for North Eastern States. Prof. Pardeshi Lal, Hon’ble ViceChancellor of Nagaland University welcomes the ICSI Fee waiver Scheme and said that this initiative of the Institute will encourage the youth of North Eastern States to develop themselves into professionals and be an important part of the Corporate architecture of the Country.
The fee waiver scheme for students “स्वावलम्बन – समग्र शिक्षा, समग्र विकास” will provide an opportunity to the youth of these States to come to the mainstream and fulfil their dreams. The Government of India is already making conscious efforts in improving the infrastructure in these areas and the Institute is doing its bit for the development of society at large. Earlier ICSI also waived the registration fees from the students of Jammu and Kashmir.
This fee waiver scheme will cover all students registering for the Foundation and Executive Programme Stages from North Eastern States (Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura & Sikkim). While registering for Foundation Programme and Executive Programme Stage respectively, all students belonging to North Eastern States who have passed the 10+2 or equivalent or Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent irrespective of the percentage of marks shall be eligible for Fee Waiver.
The President of ICSI, CS (Dr.) Shyam Agrawal while launching the fee waiver Scheme said that Education plays a vital role in inclusive development of society and The ICSI is playing a pioneer role in the field of education for many decades. The Institute, in line with the initiatives of the Government of India by focusing on the development of North Eastern States, has come up with a Fee Waiver Scheme for the students of these states for pursuing the Company Secretaries profession.
Through this proactive move, the Institute is expecting to empower the students of these States. There is abundant talent among the new generation and there is a need to provide ample opportunities to them. It is the responsibility of institutions like ICSI to offer a level playing field for such students who are not able to catch up with their counter parts in the main stream.
Shri Amit Pareek, Chairman, North Eastern Chapter of ICSI thanked CS (Dr.) Shyam Agrawal, President on behalf of the students of the States in the North East part of India for launching the Fee Waiver Scheme.
Shri Makarand Lele, Vice President, the ICSI stated that students are the most cherished resource of the country as they will be taking up the mantle in the times to come. The ICSI has the noble job of developing such budding professionals.
