Ghanshyam Das Jalan Women Degree College of Science & Commerce in suburban Malad has decided to offer full-year free education to female students who have secured above 90 per cent marks in class 12 Board examination.
The college has initiated the “full-free-education” concept to empower women by providing equal opportunity, its administration said.
“Meritorious (girl) students who have scored above 90 per cent in HSC exams and wish to pursue higher studies but are unable due to financial constraints or seat crunch in colleges, are welcome in our college,” president of ABVM Agrawal Jatiya Kosh, the trust which runs the college, Vijay Lohia said.
He said, of the total applications received for admission, those who obtained more than 90 per cent will be given free-education which is a rare thing for any institute to do and it will nurture many talents.
Started in 2014, former pro vice-chancellor of Mumbai University Dr. AD Sawant is an advisor in the college.
