NSP – National Scholarship Portal

NSP or the National Scholarship Portal is an initiative of MEIT ( Ministry of electronics and information technology ) The NSP Portal was designed with the aim of managing all the processing of scholarship schemes provided by the government of India. The process starts from scholarship applications to processing and finally sanctioning of various scholarship schemes to eligible students. The NSP portal helped in increasing transparency, accessibility, and made the process, accountable, and less time-consuming. For a lot of schemes DBT ( direct benefit transfer ) is used to directly send the benefit to the beneficiaries account and the Funds management of the scholarship schemes are done through the PFMS ( Public Fund management system ).
