A scheme has been launched by the government of Haryana to facilitate the issuance of passports to the students of final year studying in Government and Non-Government Aided Colleges across the State.
All colleges and universities in Haryana have been directed to designate a teacher as a ‘passport officer’ on their campuses to facilitate their students in getting the document made.
“It is generally observed that students studying in government colleges and non-government aided colleges in the state are not able to explore the possibilities of higher studies in good foreign universities due to lack of knowledge thereof, which reduces their job opportunities in foreign countries,” said an official spokesperson.
Taking into account, the state government has decided to start a new scheme to facilitate the issuance of passports to the students of final year of undergraduate and postgraduate courses within their colleges.
Furthermore, the spokesperson mentioned that the need of the hour is to create awareness among the students of the State regarding information about many good Universities and Colleges outside India, where further avenues for higher education can be explored to get job opportunities
As most of the students do not know the application process for getting passports,
This step will be of immense value for the students as they will be able to explore opportunities overseas.
