Pre-Matric Scholarship Schemes

The Ministry Social Justice and Empowerment is implementing following two Pre-Matric Scholarship Schemes, under which scholarship is being provided to SC and OBC students:- 

i) Pre-matric scholarship for students belonging to Other Backward Classes (OBCs); and

ii) Pre-matric scholarship for the children of those engaged in ‘unclean’ occupations (Both for SCs and non-SCs). 

Under the Scheme of Pre-matric scholarship for students belonging to Other Backward Classes, the scholarship is to be paid to the students whose parent’s/guardian’s income from all sources does not exceed Rs. 44,500/- per annum. There is no proposal to enhance this ceiling. 

There is no income ceiling prescribed under the scheme of Pre-matric scholarship for the children of those engaged in ‘unclean’ occupations. 

This information was given by the Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Shri D. Napoleon in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha.
