NEW DELHI: The Bihar government has launched a new portal to resume the post-matric scholarship scheme (PMSP) for Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) students of the academic year 2019-20, 2020-21, and 2021-22.

The Bihar education department announced on social media that education minister Vijay Kumar Choudhary and Additional Chief Secretary Sanjay Javin addressed the launch programme of the new portal of PMSP - www.pmsonline.bih.nic.in/

“Honorable Minister Shri Shri. VijayKChy, Additional Chief Secretary Shri sanjayjavin and other officials taking part in the launch programme of new portal of PMSP. #BiharEducationDept,” Bihar education department said in a social media post.

Earlier, the government had launched the National Scholarship Portal for executing the scheme. However, the portal faced technical issues and students from the last years could not apply for the scholarship, as a result.

Chief minister Nitish Kumar had directed the state education department on August 10 to resume the post-matric scholarship scheme quickly, as per a report from The Hindu.
