Under the Prime Minister’s Special Scholarship Scheme (PMSSS), it has been recorded that more than 4,000 students have taken admissions in the different educational institutions and universities located across India. This marks a 74% increase in the number of admissions taken from last years number.

In a tweet posted by the HRD Secretary, R Subramanyam, he stated that the Government saw a huge success in its scholarship scheme for J&K students for 2019. He added that there had been a 74% increase in the number of students from J&K who have taken admissions outside of their state. He gave AICTE, the accountability, for the increase due to the steps taken by them to streamline the processes.

For the year of 2019, India saw 4,418 students from Jammu and Kashmir taking admissions in under the scheme, whereas, in 2018, only 2,543 students from the state took admissions across India. The number of students who had taken admissions in 2017 had been 3,021. For the years before, i.e. 2016, 2015 and 2014, the number had been 2,168, 1,341, and 1,968 respectively.

Keeping in mind the restrictions put in place in terms of mobility and communications, the administration of the state approached the government with a request to extend the deadline for the reporting of the PMSSS scholars to the different institutes. They stated that the students from the Valley may not be able to join as a result of the restrictions. The Supreme Court, in August, agreed to the request and extended the deadline from 15th August 2019 to 15th September 2019.
