Naqvi launches national scholarship portal mobile app

UNI, New Delhi | Published : 13th September 2018

Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Thursday launched the country's first 'National Scholarship Portal Mobile App' (NSP Mobile App) here.

Speaking at the function, Mr Naqvi said that this mobile app will ensure a smooth, accessible and hassle-free scholarship system for students from poor and weaker sections. "All the scholarships are being given directly into bank accounts of the needy students under Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) mode through the National Scholarship Portal which has ensured that there is no scope for duplication and leakage", he said.

Mr Naqvi also said that the mobile app will prove beneficial for students, and will help in strengthening a transparent mechanism for the scholarships. "The mobile app will be beneficial for the students in many ways; students will get all the information regarding various scholarships on this mobile app, they will be able to apply for scholarships sitting in their home, students can upload necessary documents on this mobile app and students can check the status of their application, scholarship disbursement", the Union Minister said.

Mr Naqvi said that the Ministry of Minority Affairs has completely gone online, which has eliminated middlemen and benefits of every scheme are reaching directly to the needy without any obstacle. The Minister added that during the last four years, the Union Government's 'empowerment without appeasement' policy has ensured that record about three crore students belonging to poor and weaker sections of Minorities have been benefited from various scholarship programmes. He said the beneficiaries include about 1 crore 63 lakh girls and added that school dropout rate among Muslim girls, which was earlier more than 70 per cent, has now been reduced to about 35-40 per cent due to awareness and educational empowerment programmes of the Government. "Our goal is to bring it down to zero per cent. Transparent and hassle-free scholarship system has helped in this endeavour", Mr Naqvi added.
