Online submission of forms for Pre & Post matric scholarships provided by the central government has begun. Siasat provides free service of online submission of applications forms on behalf of students. But thanks to negligence of Union Ministry of Minority Affairs, the website for online submission of applications is inoperative for the past 4 to 5 days; as a result students face a lot of difficulties. Government has set the last date to submit online applications as August 31. Even as there is a lot of rush on Siasat Helpline Desk or other places there are frequent disruptions in the website.
Some parents told that they invited attention of high officials of Minority welfare Department but the officials showed helplessness saying that it was Central government’s affair.
Parents have appealed Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mrs. Najma Heptulla to intervene into the matter and ensure that the website is operational without interruption.
