Union Government launches National Scholarship Portal Mobile App

Union Minister for Minority Affairs, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on September 13, 2018 launched the country's first "National Scholarship Portal Mobile App" (NSP Mobile App).

National Scholarship Portal Mobile App

The National Scholarship Portal 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.

The app ensures that there is no scope for duplication and leakage.

It will prove beneficial for students and will help in strengthening a transparent mechanism for the scholarships.

How the NSP Mobile App will be beneficial for students?

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          
  • Students can check the status of their application, scholarship disbursement etc
  • Students from far-flung/hilly areas/North east will be the most benefitted

Empowerment without Appeasement Policy

During the launch, Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi mentioned that during the last 4 years, the Modi Government’s “Empowerment without Appeasement” policy has ensured that students belonging to poor and weaker sections of Minorities are benefitted from various scholarship programmes.

The beneficiaries include about 1 crore 63 lakh girls. The school dropout rate among Muslim girls, which was earlier more than 70 percent, has now been reduced to about 35-40 percent due to awareness and educational empowerment programmes.

In last one year, thousands of educational institutions of all Minority communities including Madarsas, have been included in the mainstream education system by connecting them with "3T-Teacher, Tiffin, Toilet" initiative.
