Apply for scholarship to PMC till October 1

PUBLISH DATE 18th September 2018

Needy and meritorious students, who almost lost the scholarships offered by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), have got some respite after the civic body extended the deadline to file the application till October 1. The earlier deadline was September 12.

The civic body started an online system for filing the application, but technical glitches made it difficult for students to fill the forms.

The absence of an offline system for collection and submission of forms have made it more difficult. Students now have nearly a fortnight to submit their applications.

According to sources, around 10,000 applications were received for these scholarships. The average forms that PMC gets per year are much higher. This is the first year of the fully online submission of scholarship forms.

“We have sorted out the issues, which students were facing. The process is smooth now,” Sandhya Ghagare, head PMC’s urban community development department, said.

“ Many deserving candidates come from weaker sections of society. They find it difficult to complete the online process. Some liberty should be given for filing the forms offline,” a group of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) corporators, who staged an agitation, said.

Yogesh Mulik, chairman of the standing committee, said the offline process will not be started, but the civic body will ensure that all needy students get the scholarships.

A scholarship tilted ‘Sharadabai Pawar memorial scholarship’ is also given to meritorious students, who have shown remarkable achievements in SSC and HSC exams. The PMC pays Rs 51,000 per student.

A student scoring more than 85% marks in SSC and 80% marks in HSC is eligible. The PMC had made provision of around Rs 78 lakh for this initiative in the budget for 2018-19.
