Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A team of 11 professors from Government Maharani Laxmi Bai Girls’ Autonomous College visited 55 schools in the city recently to tell students about the New Education Policy and persuade them to take admission in their college.

They also handed over a power point presentation, explaining the process for admission to the college and a booklet containing salient features of New Education Policy. The students were told that the admission process was online and transparent.

They were also informed that the college offers skill development facilities at Swami Vivekananda Career Guidance Cell. Also, the students can benefit from schemes of the state government for girl students. Free stationery and books are provided to students from the minority communities and those suffering from physical disabilities.

The students were informed that the College has a hostel and is a ragging-free campus. It has facilities for sports and games.

The visit was a part of the College Chalo Abhiyan launched by the state government. Under it, teachers from different colleges are visiting schools in their areas to draw students to the colleges. “Our teachers are talking about the special features of our college, the teachers of other colleges are talking about their colleges and so on,” Principal of MLB College Mamta Chansoria said.

The NEP has provision for multiple entries and multiple exits in UG courses and lays emphasis on vocational education and skill development. “Students need to be convinced that instead of completing graduation and waiting for a job, they should learn skills that would help them become self-dependent,” she said.

Chansoria said that since schools were closed for summer vacations, they handed over the material to the teachers for sharing with the students.
