Education Reforms 

Budget Speech para. 158: "Mr Speaker, let me state this at the outset itself. We have delivered on the promise of introducing the Student Insurance Scheme and have provided Tablets for our students. The President and the Prime Minister have clearly stated many a time that education is a key component of the country’s development strategy and, therefore, will not compromise resource allocation to its development. Hence, the Budget for education is structured on the objective of providing “13 Years of Education”. Such reforms will also focus on improving the ratio of Science, Technology, Engineering and Medicine (STEM) to Non-STEM graduates in the country."
