Govt mulls revising scholarship norms for SC students

nation Updated: May 30, 2016 06:27 IST

In order to prevent duplication of applications and bring in transparency, the government is mulling revising the existing scheme of post-matric scholarship for Scheduled Caste students. The move comes in the backdrop of unearthing of corruption in implementation of centrally-sponsored ‘post-matric scholarship and freeship’ in six most backward districts of Maharashtra. It also proposes seeding of Aadhaar with the bank accounts of beneficiaries, said a senior official.
