New Delhi: As many as 2.52 crore minority students, half of them girls, availed three scholarship schemes being offered by the government, Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said today.

Naqvi said in Lok Sabha that scholarships are being given for the education empowerment of minority students, including girl students all over the country.

All the three scholarship schemes are implemented through the National Scholarship Portal and the disbursement of scholarship is made under the Direct Benefit Transfer mode, which eliminates duplication and leakage, he said during the Question Hour.

Naqvi said so far 2.52 crore students belonging to minority communities have availed the scholarships, 50 per cent of whom were girls.

The schemes are: Pre-Matric Scholarship for students in class I to X, Post-Matric Scholarship from class XI to Ph.D and Merit-cum-Means based scholarship for professional and technical courses at under-graduate and post-graduate levels.

The minister said Begum Hazrat Mahal Scholarship Scheme is also implemented online and the scholarship is disbursed under the DBT mode and the process has increased promptness, transparency and efficiency.
