Mr. Sadhu Singh Dharamsot said that such students should submit their application forms manually in the office of the department in their respective regions along with print out of rejected online application, attendance sheet attested by the institution, copy of Adhaar card and bank pass book with one passport size photo.
He added that in the case of renewal of the scholarship scheme, the candidate should submit User ID of previous year, self declaration form filled with all particulars required for online application, fees amount and application to be attested by the head of the institute.
Mr. Dharamsot stated that the special chance has been offered to only those candidates who had failed to get themselves registered online due to the mismatch of their Adhaar card particulars within the stipulated time limit. He added that the case of those candidates who failed to apply within the prescribed time limit, the state government would take up the matter with Union government for the extension in the time limit.
