As per Vijnana Bharati guidelines, Students awarded with “Sastra Pratibha” title in one category, are not eligible to contest again in the same category. (eg. If a 5th Grade student has received the “Sastra Pratibha” title this year in Sub Junior category, are not eligible to contest for SPC in 6th and 7th grade in the coming years but can contest when he/she enters Junior Category i.e. the student can appear when he/she is in 8th Grade). This change has been brought to have maximum number of Sastra Pratibhas who can get the opportunity to visit Prestigious Research and Development Institutions in India.
