The promise of an insurance scheme for students studying outside Nagaland “within 100 days,” has been converted to an ex-gratia scheme.


In October, 2019 the Nagaland Government Ex-Gratia Scheme for Students Studying Outside Nagaland (NGESSO) was announced. As opposed to an insurance policy, this scheme will only cover the death of any ST/Indigenous Inhabitant student from Nagaland. It carries an endowment of Rs 5 lakh to the nominee(s) of any student, who dies while studying in any part of India outside the state of Nagaland. 


As per highereducation.nagaland.gov.in, such students have to register with the Directorate of Higher Education and the registration renewed every year.
