Under this scheme, students in the campus can earn a maximum of Rs 15,000 a year
Lucknow University (LU) has launched the 'Karmayogi Scheme' which offers students part-time jobs while continuing their studies on the campus. Prof Alok Kumar Rai, Vice-Chancellor of LU on Tuesday said that a student can earn up to a maximum of Rs 15,000 in a year through the 'Karmayogi Scheme'. "LU has been strongly working to establish a student-centric structured framework. We have initiated the various student-centric programme. Through 'Karmayogi Scheme' a student would be allowed to work for a maximum of two hours a day for a maximum 50 days in an academic session after his class hours. They will be paid Rs 150 per hour. A student can get a maximum of Rs 15,000 in a year," Rai said.
Rai said that as of now, the scheme was for the students of LU who are studying in the campus. "The 'Karmayogi Scheme' is only for the campus students and affiliate colleges should start such initiatives at their own level," he said. Rai explained that this scheme will have 'far-reaching consequences'. "Under the scheme, a student will learn to respect work, the varsity can use his/her talents for the welfare of LU and the student will enhance attachment to LU and get financial help," he added.
