Shri Vishwakarma Skill University (SVSU), Haryana recently has launched a new reservation scheme for the children and widows of the soldiers who are killed in the line of duty and the gallantry award winners. This initiation has been taken to honour and celebrate Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman for his safe return from Pakistan.
This scheme will help the army kids to pursue skill and formal education.
This reservation will be made available to the family of personnel from the Armed Forces, Central Armed Police Forces as well as the State Police which will be named as ‘Abhinandan: Veer Balidaani Kritagayata Yojna’ (AVBKY). The university is going to help by creating 1% supernumerary seats of the approved intake for widows and wards in all its educational and skill courses from the upcoming academic session.
University Vice-chancellor Raj Nehru said that their university is going to be the first to take up such initiatives and schemes for the welfare of our security personnel. Along with government funds, the university will also create a corpus fund to meet the expenditure incurred under AVBKY.
The selection process is in the following:
The candidates who are eligible under AVBKY can apply to any course in the university and if the applications exceed the given number of seats, a separate merit list will be prepared for these candidates.
