Bengaluru: An educational institute in the State has announced free education for children of Kashmiri Pandits settled across the country after their displacement from their home land.
Subramanya Nattoja, the convenor of Ambika Mahavidyalaya in Puttur of Dakshina Kannada District, made this announcement on Saturday April 30.
Moved by the plight of Kashmiri Pandits after watching the film ‘The Kashmir Files’, Nattoja visited Jammu and then decided to provide free education to children of Kashmiri Pandits.

“It will cost up to Rs 80,000 per student for a year to get education in this institute. The other facilities would cost them Rs 50,000 annually. But all facilities would be freely available to the children of Kashmiri Pandits,” he said.
