The Government aims to disburse scholarships under scholarship schemes to the Ministry of Minority Affairs. To ensure transparency and authenticity, a physical verification of institutes and beneficiaries for the academic year 2022-23 was conducted by the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER).

To rectify this, the Government has decided to re-validate the applications and verification of SNO (State Nodal Officer), DNO (District Nodal Officer), INO (Institute Nodal Officer), HoI (Head of Institute), and applicants. They will conduct a special drive through Aadhar-based bio-metric authentication. This will help ensure accurate and timely disbursement of the scholarship amount.

Applicants are advised to ensure that their Aadhaar number is linked to their bank account, as the scholarship payments will be made through the Aadhaar Based Payment System exclusively.
