News - Eligible Kashmiri Candidates will get chance in AICTE under PM's Scholarship Scheme

news
The technical institutions which had denied admission to Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) students under the Prime Minister's Special Scholarship Scheme (PMSSS) across the country have been directed by the All India Council for Technical Education to make sure that they accept eligible candidates or face the repercussions.

According to HT report, under the scheme, 5,000 Kashmiri students are offered the scholarship by the Central government in order to help them pursue higher education in professional, general, and medical streams outside their state. All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) shoulders the responsibility of implementing the award of scholarships to candidates from the restive state.

Admissions denied :

In a letter addressed to the technical institutes, AICTE Vice-Chairperson MP Punia told, "Unfortunately, a number of instances have been brought to our notice not only by the candidates themselves but also from other quarters, including government departments, that quite a number of the colleges have refused admission on flimsy grounds such as non-awareness of the scheme, seats not being available in the college, outright refusal for unknown reasons, etc."

He aslo wrote, "To say the least, this attitude of such colleges smacks of callous attitude towards the government of India sponsored scheme but also towards a matter of national importance."

Eligible Kashmiri students to be given admission :

The Union HRD Ministry and the AICTE have asked all the principal secretaries of states and directors of technical education to issue clear advisories to institutes and colleges falling under the purview of AICTE, University Grants Commission (UGC), and Indian Nursing Council to grant admission to eligible Kashmiri students.
