Through 'Karmayogi Scheme' a student would be allowed to work for a maximum of 2 hours a day for maximum 50 days in an academic session after his class hour. They will be paid Rs 150 per hour. A student can get maximum of Rs 15,000 in a year," Rai said.

Rai said that as of now the scheme is for the students of LU who are studying in its campus.

"As of now, the 'Karmayogi Scheme' is only for the campus students and I want affiliates colleges should start such initiative 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, varsity can use his/her talents for the welfare of LU, the student will enhance attachment to LU and get financial help," he added.
