Disbursal of Scholarship Money



Disbursal of Scholarship Money
Switching over to direct benefit transfer scheme has not denied disbursal of scholarship money to 41 lakh minority students across the country.

National Scholarship Portal was launched to provide one stop end-to-end IT platform for registration, transfer, sanction and payment of all Central Govt. scholarships during 2015-16. However, due to administrative problems in the field and technical glitches in the Portal developed by Center for Good Governance (CGG), only 38.87 lakh scholarships was disbursed in last financial year i.e. 2015-16.

The Government has decided to disburse remaining scholarships of the year 2015-16 during the current year 2016-17. For this purpose, an amount of Rs. 936.91 crore has been kept in a separate bank account especially opened to disburse the remaining scholarships to approximately 41 lakh students.

The Ministry had already released the amount of Rs.5.75 crore as additional funds to University Grants Commission during the year 2015-16 to meet the requirement of pending fellowships of minority students.

This Information was given by the Minister of State Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi in reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
