The last date to submit application for Post Matric Scholarship provided by the state government has been extended till November 15. On the direction of Deputy Chief Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali, Minority Welfare Department has extended the time for 15 days. Since last week had public holidays for more than 10 days, students failed to get required certificates. Besides that scholarship website was dysfunctional for many days.
After Siasat invited attention towards the issue, Deputy Chief Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali directed Secretary Minority Welfare Syed Omer Jaleel and Director Minority Welfare M J Akber to take necessary action in this regard. Managing Director Minority Finance Corporation B Shafiullah appealed the minority students to make use of the extended time and submit applications.
