The date of submission of Offline Applications under the Pre-Matric Scholarship scheme for of minority students has been extended to 15th October, 2015 from 31st August, 2015. The Ministry of Minority Affairs has decided to relax the guidelines of the scheme in view of the technical glitches being faced by the students while applying on the National Scholarship Portal (NSP) for the Ministry’s Pre-Matric scholarship scheme. Dr.Najma Heptulla, the Union Minister for Minority Affairs said that the extension will be applicable in respect of fresh applications and the benefit will be extended to all the States/ Union Territories. She informed that the Ministry will issue necessary orders soon in this regard.

The Ministry had received representations from several quarters regarding the difficulty faced by the students in remote parts of the country in filling application online. Reviewing representations, the Minister took a considerate view on the issue and agreed to permit the students of Class I to VIII to apply offline under the Pre-Matric Scholarship scheme.
