Manipur University students on Wednesday held a protest against the delay in the disbursement of post-matric and post-graduate scholarship to students under MOBC from National Scholarship Portal for the year 2021-2022. The students demanded immediate release of scholarship funds.
Student of MA third semester, Oinam Premdash told mediapersons that the scholarship was taken over by NSP from MOBC department and the scholarship for 2021-22 is yet to be disbursed even as scholarship for 2022-23 has been applied and the same submitted.
The students have been appealing to the state government and MOBC department for disbursing the scholarship but there has been no response from the authority, he informed.
So, the submission date for scholarship 2022-23 form should extend and disburse the pending scholarship of 2021-22, he said.
If the scholarship is not disbursed to the students, different forms of agitation will continue along with other college students.
