e-Payment for scholarships soon


The Union Minister for Communications and Information Technology Kapil Sibal has launched the Electronic e-Pass application — an e-payment and application system for scholarships, for Himachal Pradesh and Tripura states.

Through this system, college students who earn government scholarship in India will soon be able to receive the money via electronic transfer directly to their account.

Developed by Centre for Good Governance of Andhra Pradesh Government, the e-Pass is an end-to-end solution from registration of scholarship application to the transaction of money into the students’ bank account digitally.

The solution has been operational in Andhra Pradesh since 2009.
