Scholarships to be credited into students' accounts soon

Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: Higher Education Minister D. Sridhar Babu on Monday said authorities are working to streamline the process of crediting scholarships and fee reimbursements online into students' bank accounts.

“This process of depositing scholarships and fee reimbursement online would be beneficial to students, besides making things easy. The streamlining is under process and would be completed shortly,” said Mr. Babu while addressing a gathering at the tree plantation programme on JNTUH campus, Kukatpally.

To inspire students take up social responsibility of planting trees, the government is planning to make tree plantation mandatory for students. Talks are on with the State Council for Higher Education to make tree plantation mandatory. Based on the duration of the course, students will be made to plant trees at their respective colleges, towns or homes before convocation ceremony. Authorities are working on the modalities, the Minister said. Meanwhile, the open ground near the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing at JNTU campus turned green as over 200 saplings were planted by students.

Minister for Forest and Environment P. Ramachandra Reddy said as per the National Forest Policy, 33 per cent of geographical area has to be brought under forest or tree cover in the State.

Efforts are on to raise 17,000 seedlings for every Gram Panchayat per year and this process will be continued till next three years, Mr. Reddy informed. Branding the 2G spectrum as the biggest scam in the country, Mr. Narayan said mere resignation of Minister would not serve any purpose. The spectrum allocation should be cancelled and fresh tenders should be called, he demanded.
