    • About 5008 students have been admitted in different colleges outside j&k state under this scholarship scheme but their career has been spoiled because ministry of human resources and development have not released funds for the colleges , now the college authorities are forcing students to leave the colleges or either pay the hefty fee which the students can’t due to their family income being too low , the college authorities have even snatched their board certificates of 10th and 12th classes so that the students career gets wasted….
