LPU introduces Early Decision Benefit (EDB) programme

May 14, 2013

For over a generation, ‘Early Decision Benefit’ programme has allowed students world-wide to implement their future plans in advance. In US it is common with the universities to get the students to decide to join the university earlier under EDB. In turn, the students focus on the institution providing the best educational foundation for their individual needs, advantages and aspirations. Along the same lines, Punjab based Lovely Professional University (LPU) has also introduced EDB this year, which allows students to take decision and register earlier with the university. For students enrolled under EDB fees of the previous academic year would be applicable and therefore they would end up paying lesser fee than the students not admitted through EDB scheme. The registration deadline for EDB is May 31, 2013.

To apply under EDB programme, students are required to write the online tests NEAT-UG 2013 in the case of B.Tech and NEAT PG 2013 for MBA programmes which are conducted in the university campus as well as at over 70 locations across India. Only students who clear the tests are eligible to apply under the EDB programme.

Comments LPU chancellor Ashok Mittal, “LPU has endeavoured strenuously to bring best practices of US in India, and bringing EDB is another such an initiative.”   Mittal also mentioned that EDB is a unique platform where a student not only pays the lower fee by taking early decision, but is also benefitted by getting higher scholarship in certain cases. So far, hundreds of students have benefitted from this programme.

Lovely Professional University is India’s largest university in terms of students on a single campus with more than 25,000 students enrolled in its various programmes. It is the culmination of mammoth efforts to change the shape of the Indian education to bring it at par with global standards.
