Through the ‘Mera Swaraj Education Support Program’, students will not only receive financial support for four years, subject to consistent academic performance, but will also get practical exposure to modern tools and technologies through plant and field visits. As a part of their internships, they will also work on live farm-mechanisation projects mentored by industry experts.
