NIS Sparta decide to work with MoRD on a project to train 24000 youth in 3 years. Through each project NIS had to train and place 6000 rural BPL beneficiaries. The government would fund 10000/- per candidate and the contribution from PIA would be 33%. The eligibility criteria for the BPL beneficiary was that he / she should hail from a rural area [Village or a Panchayat] with a valid BPL proof [BPL card] which would carry the photo of the beneficiary and other family members along with the address.
