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.
Earlier this month in view of larger interest of the minority students the Ministry has extended the date of submission of applications for the Maulana Azad National Fellowship. The Ministry also permitted one time chance for minority students with rejected claims of 2014- 15 to edit and correct their bank details. Edit facility is available on National Scholarship Portal (NSP) till 30th September, 2015.
