 Gudivada, July 28 (prajaamaravati): State Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Minister Kodali Srivenkateswara Rao (Nani) has said that CM Jaganmohan Reddy has shed light on the lives of poor students through the state government's ambitious Jagananna Vidyadivena scheme (Fee Reimbursement).  On Wednesday, Minister Kodali Nani was met by Konkitala Anjaneyaprasad of the town at his residence in Rajendranagar, Gudivada town, Krishna district.  Speaking on the occasion, he said that his son Ajay had completed his B.Tech CSE course at Gokaraju Gangaraju Engineering College in Bachupally, Telangana State.  He said he got a job in a private company but the college management was refusing to give certificates to Ajay.  Fee Reimbursement for BTech studies has been sanctioned, but the college management has stated that the fee reimbursement has not been credited to their account.  He demanded that the entire fee reimbursement sanctioned by the Andhra Pradesh government should be credited to Gokaraju Gangaraju College.  On this, Minister Kodali Nani said that he would take up the matter with the college management and if any problems arose, he would bring it to the notice of CM Jaganmohan Reddy and resolve it.  Later, Minister Kodali Nani said the state government aims to provide full fee reimbursement to every eligible student in a timely manner and without any arrears.  Fee Reimbursement is being fully implemented to enable even poorer students to pursue higher studies.  CM Jagan has repeatedly said that students should not wait for fee reimbursement and parents should not be in debt.  As part of this, the first installment of 10 lakh 88 thousand 439 students in April this year, Rs.  671.45 crore was deposited directly in the accounts of the mothers of the students.  The government is preparing to deposit Rs 693.81 crore for the second tranche of about 10.97 lakh students.  The arrears of Rs 1,774.60 crore during the last government tenure for the 2018-19 academic year were paid when CM Jagan came to power.  He said the government would deposit the fee reimbursement directly into the accounts of the mothers of the students instead of going to the colleges so that the parents could go to the college and pay the fees directly and inquire about education, facilities and other facilities.  If there are unresolved issues the government can bring them to their attention.  He said the government was taking all measures to prevent college management from charging large sums of money from students in the name of fees.  Minister Kodali Nani said that fee reimbursement is being implemented to increase accountability among college management  as well.
