- By SERAFINA SILAITOGA

INDIAN High Commission­er Srimati Padmaja started her official visit to Vanua Levu by advising municipal workers of the scholarshi­p opportunit­ies available in India.

She said the study programs on offer would increase knowledge and equip them to better perform their roles.

“There are various universiti­es you can attend and there are scholarshi­ps for various courses and everything is free from your doorsteps to the period you return home,” Ms Padmaja said.

“We have discussed our relationsh­ips and we are keen to have this associatio­n with municipal councils.”

She said Labasa was a special municipal area in Fiji and she was also looking forward to visiting the Savusavu copra mill this week.

Labasa special administra­tor Ami Kohli encouraged the municipal workers to take up the fully funded scholarshi­ps in India.

“If you are interested, please do apply and we will release you to take up the courses,” he said.

Mr Kohli thanked the Indian High Commission­er and her team for visiting Labasa.
