The last date to apply for the scholarship is March 23. 

According to TISS authorities, they were unable to direct students from these categories towards availing these scholarships owing to a ‘confusion’ over the eligibility of the institute.

Though GOI-PMS is funded by the union government, state governments are responsible for disbursing it. The conditions for availing these scholarships depend on a student`s state of origin.
