All Manipur Students Union (AMSU) said certain rules implemented by the directorate of other backward classes and scheduled castes regarding the pre matric and post matric scholarship for the year 2017 – 2018, is going to cause disadvantages to the applicants belonging to scheduled caste category.
A notification released by the department on October 12 mentions that the applicants must include the original certificate for scheduled caste while applying for the scheme, said a release.
The is going to cause unnecessary wastage of time for the students as they will have to undergo process of making original certificates every year, it said. Ironically, the department has requested for self-attested xerox copies of OBC certificates for OBC students, it continued. The union has appealed the department to look into the matter and make the required changes urgently, it added.
