MALAYSIA - Indian parents have been urged not to be influenced by the offers and the false information given by some private colleges in admitting their children and face unwanted problems in the future.
There are still many places in government institutions for the Indian students that have not been filled, reported Malaysia Nanban.
This call was made by Health Minister and MIC Deputy President Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam after he attended the Family Day Carnival organised by MIC Segamat Division Youth Subcommittee on Sunday.
He said the Government had allocated 1,500 matriculation places for outstanding students based on merit this year. He said that last year, the Government had allocated RM50 million (S$19.2 million) but only RM25 million was spent and it benefited only 700 Indian students.
He said Indian parents and students should take full advantage of the places in the government matriculation colleges and universities given by the education ministry and fully sponsored by the Government.
