JNTUK As per the directions of Honorable Vice-Chancellor, all the principals of affiliated colleges are requested to go through the G.O. cited in ref (1) and adhere to the issues mentioned meticulously. In the reference (2) read above, "Government has instructed that the educational institutions are prohibited from withholding the certificates of students eligible for scholarship. Any deviation will invite severe action, including debarring of the concerned institution from the scheme of Post Matric Scholarships."

In the reference (3 ) read above, the Higher Education Department has issued guidelines for all the colleges on applicability of Jagananna Vidya Deevena scheme, wherein it is mentioned that "the Educational Institution shall not withhold the certificates of students eligible for fee reimbursement under any circumstances."

In the reference (4) read above, "the Director of Social Welfare, AP has proposed that it be made explicit that the Colleges are at liberty to collect the fee due from the defaulting mothers. So that there is no ambiguity on follow up action to be taken in case any mother does not pay the Jagananna Vidya Deevena to the college, even after receipt of the same from Government.

In terms of the guidelines under the Centrally Sponsored Scheme of Post Matric Scholarship for SC students, the fee shall be released to the accounts of the students or mother of the students.

It is therefore felt that there shall he a mechanism to involve mothers in the education of their children as part of their empowerment. When the fee is paid by the mother to the college for every quarter, then the mother has an opportunity to visit the college at least once in a quarter and interact with the college authorities on the academic progress of her children. It will also provide an opportunity to the mother to give feedback to the College on the infrastructure facilities or the quality of the education being provided to her children by the College. Government would also get a feedback and be able to take further steps to improve the quality of education or infrastructure being provided by the Institutions as prescribed in the norms.

The Colleges shall be notified of the release of Jagananna Vidya Deevena to the accounts of the Mothers by the Government as soon as the amounts are credited.
In case any mother does not pay the Jaganna Vidya Deevena to the college within a week of the release of the amount, then the college concerned shall file a complaint in the service provided in their login for this purpose in Jananbhumi portal. This service will be available after Seven days from the date of credit of the amount to the accounts of the mothers. Such claims will be referred to logins of the Welfare and Education Assistant (WEA) or the Ward Education and Data Processing Secretary concerned, as the case may be, who shall then consult the defaulting mother, verify the facts and intimate the parents concerned to remit the amounts to the colleges. This process shall be completed with 10 days of filing of the complaint by the college.

If the money is not remitted within three weeks of the complaint lodged by a college, the college is at liberty to collect the fee/dues from the student/ mother, as per the norms applicable for collection of fee due from students, who are not eligible for Post Matric Scholarships scheme.

Government shall release the subsequent installments of Jagananna Vidya Deevena to the mother, only after the previously released fee is remitted to the college.
All educational institutions which are registered in Jnanabhumi portal are instructed not to insist for payment of fee at the time of admission from the students eligible for Jagananna Vidya Deevene scheme, as such a condition would deprive the students belonging to the weaker section of the society from getting enrolled in higher education, and the Government is committed to release the fee to the mothers in four quarters, who in turn will pay to the colleges, as per the above mentioned instructions."

Hence, it is informed to follow the given G.O.s strictly.
