Grievance redressal procedures to be followed in getting Tamil Nadu government Post-Matric Scholarship for SC/ST

I continue to receive mail enquires regarding the Tamil Nadu government Post-Matric Scholarship for SC/ST students studying in private Engineering, Medical, Nursing, Diploma, Teacher training, Arts and Science colleges. Hence I decided to post this additional information along with grievance redressal procedures to be followed in getting the scholarship.

·         SC/ST students (Parents Annual income 2 Lakhs) studying in Deemed universities are also eligible for this Scholarship.


·         As per the government order scholarship amount are disbursed through online process using a centralised website. College management should feed all details of SC/ST students admitted in their college in the online portal. You can visit this website here


·         Moreover government has clearly mentioned in its GO that college management should not collect tuition fees from SC/ST students. Kindly show this to the management. you can download the GO from here:;jsessionid=8CEAABEA54F81941AF3A09063F0BCD6B

Further references:

·         Even after taking these steps if the management continue to ignore your pleas you can petition the CM cell for necessary action. You have to create a login name and file a petition under social justice. You will get a petition number and you can track the status of your petition online itself.

·         You can seek the assistance of Chennai-based social movement Thudi Iyakkam. They have been conducting seminars and conferences across the state to make the benefits of the Post-Matric Scholarship Scheme reach the maximum number of Dalit students.

Contact number of Thudi Iyakkam will be given on request only!!!
