Aadhaar card to be mandatory for College & University students availing benefits under Central Scholarships scheme

Union Human Resource Development Ministry has stated that to avail benefit under the Central Sector Scholarship Scheme for College and University students, applicants will now have to furnish proof of possession of Aadhaar card or undergo Aadhaar authentication. 

HRD ministry notification issued in New Delhi stated that those who are receiving these scholarships but don’t have an Aadhar card will have to apply for enrolment by June 30th,2017.It is, however, not applicable in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to officials, the move brings in transparency and enables beneficiaries get entitlements directly to them in a convenient and seamless manner and Aadhaar obviates the need for producing multiple documents to prove identity.
