In a major boost to transparency and access to information for college students in the state, the Haryana government has released a mobile-based app called ‘Shiksha Setu’ which will provide students of government colleges with details on attendance, fees, online admissions and scholarships, reports The Indian Express.

The app will also instantly notify students as well as teachers of any important notices, circulars or new programmes. Moreover, students will be able to pay their college fees online via the app.

Keeping updates on assignments will also be facilitated through the application.

Come admission time, the app will enable students to check the availability of seats in each course of every college in Haryana, and will also allow them to gain information about possible scholarship programmes.

Director of the state’s higher education department A Sreenivas stated that the Shiksha Setu app will improve transparency in the department and in college administration, while also allowing students, teachers, parents and officials to stay connected.
