State Scholars sent to Europe
The following question was raised at the Council of State in the year 1922:
"The Honourable Mahamahopadhyaya Dr. Ganganath Jha: Will the government be pleased to inform:
(a) The names of State scholars who have been sent to Europe for higher study, during the last ten years;
(b) the subjects for the study of which the scholarship was awarded to each scholar;
( c) the work that has been by each scholar since his return to India; and
(d) the works and papers published by each of them since their return to the country?
The Honourable Mian Sir Muhammad Shafi: (a) & (b). The information, so far as available, is laid on the table. The information regarding technical State scholarships in recent years is however not available, since those scholarships were provincials with effect from 1918.
( c) The occupation taken up by the State technical scholars since their return to India is given in the statement so far as it is available. The Government of India have no information regarding the history of other scholars after return to India.
(d) The government of India have no information and do not think that the advantages of collecting this information would commensurate with the labour involved."
It was very rosy for many State Scholars regarding the occupation after return to India. Take a look-
