Jammu, Sept 12: The Social Welfare department has demanded online applications for post-matriculation scholarships despite internet shutdown in the state, forcing the aspirants at the mercy of cyber-cafe owners, who have been charging exorbitantly and also misbehave with them.
Aspirants informed Early Times that the Social Welfare Department Jammu has sought online applications for Post Matriculation Scholarship for students belonging to OBC/SC/PHC/EBC/DNT for the year 2018-19. "Though the last date for filing application form has been extended to 31st of December but in absence of internet shutdown, we have been forced to visit the cyber-cafe owners. Most of them have been refusing to fill the forms and the remaining, who agree, are demanding fee ranging from Rs. 200 to 300 per form", an aspirant said. The aspirants further said that the scholarship form has to be uploaded on a portal of the department. "Initially the cyber-cafe owners don't agree to fill the forms and when we make requests, they get agreed but on their own terms and conditions.

Criticizing the department, the aspirants said that when internet services have been snapped for the last over one month, the SWD must switch back to offline forms.

Some aspirants also complaint that the minor aspirants have to submit an affidavit, which were earlier banned by state government. "The magistrates deny issuance of affidavit on the name of minor students and ask to take it on behalf of parents, but same will be rejected by the department, which will again a harassment for the aspirants", the aspirants said, adding that if the government had ordered to done-away with affidavits then, why same has been reintroduced?.
