NSP Scholarship Scheme 2023 – Important Information

Scholarship recipients should be aware that the scholarship can be discontinued under the following circumstances:

  • False Statements: If the student is found to have obtained the scholarship by providing false or misleading information.
  • Discontinuation of Studies: If a student discontinues their studies, the scholarship will be stopped from the date of discontinuance.
  • Change of Subject or Institution: If the scholar changes the subject of the course of study for which the scholarship was originally awarded or switches to a different academic institution without obtaining prior approval from the Welfare Commissioner.
  • Academic Performance and Conduct: If the scholar fails to make satisfactory progress in their studies, or is irregular in attendance, or is found guilty of misconduct during the academic year for which the scholarship has been granted.
  • Parental Employment: If the parent(s) of the scholar ceases to be a Beedi, Mine, or Cine worker.
  • If there is more than one child/ward of the same worker applying for the scholarship program, each child should provide a separate bank account number.

This also ensures that each eligible child receives their due scholarship benefits independently.

Note:- It’s important to note that if any of the above conditions are found to be applicable after the scholarship amount has been disbursed to the scholar, the scholarship amount will be recovered from the scholar or their parents. Therefore, scholarship recipients must adhere to the scholarship’s terms and conditions to maintain their eligibility and continue receiving financial support.
