The Planning Commission has decided to pay 75% of pre-matric scholarship for minorities in Gujarat, even if the state government does not pay the rest 25%. The Gujarat government has been rejecting Centre’s scholarship schemes for minorities on the grounds that they discriminate against non-minorities.
The BJP Narendra Modi-led government has contended that Gujarat had its own scholarship schemes for all school children irrespective of religion. Speaking to TOI, National Commission for Minorities (NCM) chairman Wajahat Habibullah said, “The Centre has decided to pay 75% of the Centres pre-matric scholarship for minorities without insisting on pre-payment of 25% by the Gujarat government”. Last year, the Bombay High Court had upheld central scholarship schemes for minorities saying it had no adverse impact on the majority community.
