The Department of Higher Education selected 803 girl students falling in this category. The mes of the girl students have already been published in the department’s website. The department has asked the students to express their choice of delivery point for non-gear two-wheelers before December 15 to the address given in the email. Sixteen dealers in the State have been given the contract for the delivery of non-gear bikes to girl students. The beneficiary students will have to produce their age proofs, address proofs and download the registration and insurance formats available in the department’s website to be delivered to the delivery point of their choice.
