More Than 5 Lakh SC/ST And Minority Students In Delhi Haven’t Got Scholarships

“More than 5 lakh scholarships” to SC/ST and other minority groups are not being disbursed according to a recent report. In a note to Chief Secretary M M Kutty on the issue on June 30, the CM said the files in this regard were “never put to my minister” during the entire period from 2015 to 2017 and “the elected government was kept in the dark”. Kejriwal mentions an inquiry by the Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi (DDC), ordered by him in the matter. “(Its) report alleges that more than 5 lakh scholarships are yet to be disbursed in Delhi due to complete abdication of responsibilities, apathy, insensitivity & dereliction of duty by the seniormost officials” of the Delhi Government.
