Prime Minister’s Special Scholarship Scheme (PMSSS) J&K 2019-20

Prime Minister's Special Scholarship Scheme (PMSSS) J&K 2018-19




An Expert Group was constituted by the Prime Minister on 18th August, 2010 in the context of enhancing employment opportunities among youths of Jammu and Kashmir and to formulate job plan involving public and private sectors. Every year fresh scholarships were given to J&K candidates to pursue undergraduate studies outside the state of Jammu & Kashmir for improving their skills by providing access to education. Scheme was started in 2011 and modified from time to time to make the scheme student friendly. The scheme envisages to build capacities of the youth of J&K to enable them to compete in the normal course. Scholarship is awarded to meet the expenditure towards Academic Fees and Maintenance Allowances (for hostel, mess, cost of books and other incidental charges) to candidates who are admitted through AICTE’s counseling process.



Scholarship towards academic fee will be reimbursed directly to Institution as per actual or as per maximum fee permitted by State Fee Regulatory Authority or ceiling fixed under PMSSS for different streams of education, whichever is less and within overall ceiling of the guidelines. All the Institutions may note that upper ceiling of Academic Fee reimbursable by AICTE shall be at actuals for all the components taken together with a maximum ceiling of Rs. 1,25,000/- for Professional Streams which includes Engineering, Pharmacy, Nursing, HMCT, Architecture; Rs. 30,000/- and for General

Stream and Rs. 3,00,000 for Medical Stream. Even if the institute total fee is more than the ceiling, neither AICTE shall reimburse extra amount nor institute can charge to the students.


The ceiling for maintenance expenses will be Rs. 1.00 lakh per annum for all streams and will be paid through PFMS mechanism in candidates account directly. Maintenance during first year will be released in 9 instalments i.e. first instalment of Rs. 20,000/ on verification of joining report by the Institute and eight monthly instalments of Rs. 10,000/ per month. The release of the monthly instalments would be subject to online verification of student’s attendance by the concerned institute every month. If the absence of student is not communicated before 15th of the concerned month, it will be assumed that student is present for the month and monthly emoluments shall be transferred into students account. The responsibility of not communicating absence of the student shall be vested in the college administration.


The maintenance expenses instalments in the following year will be released subject to online submission of continuation/promotion certificate by the Head of the Institution.


The maintenance expenses include: hostel, mess, cost of books and other incidental charges etc. Maximum payable amount to student is Rs. 1,00,000/- per annum and will be disbursed in the students saving bank account directly by the AICTE through PFMS mode. In case institute hostel and mess charges are higher, the students will be required to pay the balance amount.
