Bhubaneswar: Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik launched integrated Odisha State Scholarship portal on Tuesday, to help eligible students avail scholarship benefits in a seamless and transparent manner. More than 11 lakh beneficiaries will be benefited from this unified portal.

The Portal is linked with State Treasury Portal IFMC for automated payment directly into the bank accounts of beneficiaries. The ST & SC Development, Minorities & Backward Classes Welfare Department is the first to go live with Post Matric Scholarship Schemes to benefit 6 lakh eligible ST, SC, OBC/SEBC and EBC students.

The portal has been established with an aim of automation, streamlining and effective management of scholarship program. 21 scholarship schemes of 6 major depts have been brought under one.

Aadhaar based registration and integration with the online platforms and database has been done to minimize duplication and ensure leakage free disbursal of scholarship.

CM Patnaik also launched SUMANGAL Portal, developed by ST & SC Development, Minorities & Backward Classes Welfare Department, which will grant incentive to inter-caste married couples under Odisha Right to Public Services Act, 2012. Applicants need to apply through sumangal.odisha.gov.in.
