#EXCLUSIVE: The issue of the “Ishan Uday Scholarship” becoming more of a scam – has been a major source of discontent for the deserving students, especially from the past year.

The scholarship which targets to promote students belonging to economically weaker sections has now become a source of earning money through fake documents.

The names of many beneficiaries were found to be repeated and their respective colleges were also unknown or not well-recognized.

This alleged a probable scam and fraud in the selection process for the scholarship programme – usually conducted through fake documents.

The merit list for the scholarship year 2020-21 was published by the UGC in the previous year had several instances of bogus beneficiaries.

This list was further reviewed and a new merit list has been forwarded, only to add to the pre-existing distress of the students. The recent merit list consists of not even a single name of students belonging to various educational institutions including Cotton University.

Cottonians have mailed and reported the issue to the Grievance Redressal Committee for availing the scholarship.

Speaking to the “truth.”, a student said, “My name had appeared in the first list, but due to proper indications towards a scam the list was cancelled. The recent merit list that has been put forward consist of no names of students from Cotton University including me.”

The student added, “We did not apply for any other scholarship and our hopes lied only on Ishan Uday. Our senior batches have already received their second-time payment when we are still left to have received a proper and correct merit list”.

Addressing the issue, the newly formed Cotton University Students Union has put forward a memorandum to the authorities to take necessary steps and help the students in need regarding their academic finance and queries.
