Quoting a spokesperson of the higher education department, on behalf of the department director-general, an official said that all the government colleges and their principals have been directed about the same. Authorities have been intimated about the need to verify and update the data of all those students belonging to the scheduled caste category aspiring/ receiving assistance and monetary support for study material or books in the year 2020-21. Government Colleges will have to verify and update that data on the ERP-portal of the college by 29 January 2021.
Following are mandatory to be verified before the monetary support:
