 Context: The “SHREYAS” scheme, consisting of four central sector sub-schemes, has played a significant role in empowering students from Scheduled Castes (SC) and Other Backward Classes (OBC) in India since 2014-15.

The sub-schemes are as follows:

  • Free Coaching Scheme for SCs and OBCs
  • Top Class Education for SCs
  • National Overseas Scheme for SCs
  • National Fellowship for SC Students

These sub-schemes under the SHREYAS umbrella have significantly contributed to the education and empowerment of SC and OBC students, enabling them to pursue higher education and excel in their chosen fields.
