Coming straight from Tamil Nadu, this scheme is launched for various categories to provide financial assistance to residents of Tamil Nadu for a better living standard and lead a good life. This scheme came into life for girls, to help them complete their education. A scheme introduced by the Tamil Nadu government named the Moovalur Ramamirtham Ammaiyar Higher Education Assurance scheme aimed to increase the ratio rate of girl enrollment in government schools and Higher education institutions.
