Sajda Ahmed asks a Question on scholarships for minority-community students in Bengal
Sir, the Ministry of Minority Affairs is giving merit-cum-means scholarship to the students who get admission to colleges to pursue technical or professional courses like medical and engineering on the basis of a competitive examination. This process is being done through the National Scholarship Portal and the amounts are being directly transferred to the students.
For the year 2016-17, about 600 to 700 students of West Bengal were informed that their scholarships were granted and that the amounts had been transferred to their bank accounts but the students have not got the scholarship amounts till now.
Will the Minister please tell us when will the students of West Bengal get the scholarship amounts for the year 2016 -2017?
