Need For Setting up Education Finance Corporation – SCC Scheme
Existing Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) for higher studies is 13.9% in Bihar. The state govt. wishes to raise GER to at-least 20%. Under SCC Scheme, bihar govt. provides a guarantee of Rs. 160 for every Rs. 100 borrowed by a student. Still the banks were delaying disbursement of funds to the eligible beneficiaries and their response also was not along the expected lines.
So, the state govt. has decided to set up an Education Finance Corporation to tackle and resolve this issue. Accordingly, the state govt. will implement this SCC Scheme on their own without the involvement of banks from next year.
