  1. GTU will only allow maximum 15 students per institutes.
  2. If Degree+ Diploma Institute than maximum students allowed per village [2- Degree (Civil) OR 3- Diploma(Civil) OR 1- Degree/ Diploma (Electrical)]
  3. If only Degree Institute, than maximum students allowed per village [3- Degree (Civil) OR 1- Degree/ Diploma (Electrical)]
  4. If only Diploma Institute, than maximum students allowed per village [4- Diploma(Civil) with 1- Degree/ Diploma (Electrical)]
  • For the villages having small population/ small area the group can be of 2 students (degree)/ 3 students (diploma) + 1 electrical students. so that students work can be showcased properly.
  • The institute having only Electrical branch should proposed more designs (from the electrical perspective) in the benefit of Village and students too.
  • Students will be eligible for stipend only if they have form their group according to guidelines. so it is requested to all the nodal officers to form the group accordingly.
  • All the guidelines given here is for maximum students, nodal officer can put minimum students too according to village area/ population/ distance from the institute/ other.
