The budget 2022 should focus on interventions towards retention of students in the education system. Education sector is one of the most impacted sectors because of the pandemic and is in direct need of support from the Government. The finance ministry along with state governments should look at initiatives that will further help students whose families have been affected with scholarships and flexible and low interest education loans. This will help to curb the current attrition in the education sector.

To strengthen India’s promising EdTech and digital start-up ecosystem, we expect the government to provide better internet infrastructure, robust data protection systems and more tax exemptions in the upcoming Union Budget. In addition, mental health counselling should become an essential part of institutes to help children cope with the ill effects of COVID 19. The budget must provide for this and should focus on interventions towards retention of students in the education system.
