Modi governmet to set up hostels for Northeastern students in various cities

Few hostels are already coming up in Delhi, and more hostels are planned in Bengaluru and other cities

The BJP government led by PM Narendra Modi has decided to open up hostels for the benefit of the students from Northeast living in various cities of India. The Union government has announced that special hostels for them would come up in Delhi, Bengaluru and several other cities of the country.

On Monday, addressing a group of students from Northeast, Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) Dr Jitendra Singh announced that the government will provide hostel facilities to students from the northeastern states across several cities in India. A group of students from the Northeast are in Delhi as a part of a team to visit several cities under the annual “Students Experience in Inter-State Living” (SEIL) programme.

A Northeast Hostel for Girl Students is ready for inauguration at the Bangalore University campus and an exclusive Northeast Hostel is under construction at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi, where a very large number of youths are pursuing higher studies, he said.

In addition, a plot of land is being acquired in Rohini area of Delhi to set up a hostel for Northeast students studying in Delhi University, and also land has been acquired in Dwarka, New Delhi to construct a state-of-the-art Northeast Convention Centre, said a press release from PIB.

Dr Jitendra Singh emphasised that one of the major achievements of the Narendra Modi government has been starting facilities for cost-effective living through hostels and other means in different parts of the country for Northeastern students.

He said that the NDA government has focussed on the youth of the North-East region  and it could be assessed from the fact that the “Start-up India, Stand-up India” programme initiated by the Prime Minister had been implemented in the region with an added support from the Ministry of DoNER in the form of “Venture Fund”.

“The response to this has been very encouraging and in the years to come, Northeast may become a favourite destination for young Start-Ups from all over India,” he said.

Minister Jitendra Singh further mentioned the Northeast Rural Livelihood Programme and promotion of “Home Tourism” as examples of government’s push to generate employment in the region, stressing that the latter had become a major source of livelihood and revenue generation, especially in states like Meghalaya and Sikkim.
