SC/ST students of Bihar will now get scholarship amount in bank accounts

SC/ST students of Bihar will now get scholarship amount directly in their bank accounts, thanks to the initiative taken by the state cabinet under the leadership of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

To further promote the concept of DBT and to make the process of providing scholarship easier, the state cabinet in Bihar on February 13, 2018 gave its nod for direct benefit transfer (DBT) of scholarship amount to the bank account of SC/ST students in the state.

“Funds to the tune of INR 39.15 crore would be distributed among around 24,000 SC/ST students enrolled in government institutions in the ongoing fiscal,” Cabinet secretariat department’s principal secretary Brijesh Mehrotra was quoted as saying by Times of India.

Being given under the post-matric scholarship scheme of the government, the SC/ST students of Class XI-XII up to the academic year 2015-16 will receive the scholarship amount in their bank account.

With an objective to bring transparency and to terminate pilferage from distribution of funds, DBT was launched in selected cities of India on January 1, 2013 by the government of India, covering scholarships and social security pensions initially. In DBT, benefit or funds will be directly transferred to people concerned. This initiative was launched to change the mechanism of transferring funds or scholarship amounts launched by Government of India.

Chaired by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the state cabinet also approved two other proposals of the land and revenue affairs department for transfer of 1.86 acre of land at Rajgir to the Infrastructure Development Authority for its land bank scheme.

The government also approved the transfer of three acres of land at Dighalbank in Kishanganj district to the Union home ministry for development of a border outpost for SSB.
