SIX students from the Western Division have received their passports and student visas to study in India from the Indian High Commission's Cultural Centre.
The students from Tavua, Ba and Lautoka were given their airplane tickets by ICC director Dr Kamal Mishra.
Dr Mishra said with their scholarships, the students would be able to gain a proper education and employment after their studies.
The students leave for India on Thursday.
THE Indian Cultural Centre has given musical instruments and books to a primary school in Tavua.
During his visit to the region over the weekend, Indian Cultural Centre director Dr Kamal Mishra gave musical instruments and books to Tagitagi Sangam Primary School.
Dr Mishra also gave instruments to Viti Vanua's Ramayan Mandali.
The gifts are part of ICC's continuous support of traditional culture and music in the country.
CONSUMER complaints made at municipal councils should be treated with confidentiality.
Consumer Council of Fiji chief executive officer Premila Kumar said failure to maintain confidentiality led to problems between community neighbours and the reluctance of some ratepayers to raise issues with local government.
"Instead of maintaining confidentiality when addressing complaints, staff members disclose details of the complainant against whom the complaint is lodged.
It instils fear in those who want to complain," Mrs Kumar said.
