Coimbatore: The post-matric scholarship scheme for students from SC and ST communities needs some changes, activists and educationists said.
“Under the scholarship, SC and ST students would be given only the fee fixed by the state.
“The policy should be such that a particular academic year’s fee should be given in the same year.”The scholarship scheme has been very helpful to SC and ST students, said Selvakumar.
The amount should be given to them in the same academic year.Members of the Students’ Federation of India (SFI), who have been protesting the modifications made to the scholarship scheme under the GO51, said the scholarship for SC and ST students, who join colleges under management quota, has been reduced.
The students, who were given a full fee refund, are now being given only a part of the fee as per the modification.
