Meanwhile, earlier this month, Shivraj Singh Chouhan also announced new scholarships to encourage Sanskrti among students. He promised scholarships to students learning Sanskrit. Reportedly, the scholarship is scheduled to begin in July. As per the media reports, this decision was taken prior to the cabinet meeting at Vallabh Bhawan when addressing his cabinet ministers. Students will be able to apply for the scholarship through an online portal, claimed the reports.
The scholarship is intended to assist students and priests studying the Sanskrit language. This will also result in the filling of empty Sanskrit instructor positions. As per the Times Of India report, 1900 posts have been filled so far, and recruitments were being made on the remaining posts. Furthermore, until teachers are hired, arrangements will be made for guest faculty. CM Chouhan made a number of announcements at the beginning of May, including the state government’s plan to add a lesson on Bhagwan Parshuram to the school curriculum.
