ANSWER
THE MINISTER OF MINORITY AFFAIRS 

(SHRIMATI SMRITI ZUBIN IRANI)

(a) There is State-wise/Community-wise quota for fresh scholarships under Pre-Matric and Post- Matric Scholarship Schemes. However, in 2019-20 all the eligible beneficiaries from certain State/UT were awarded scholarship under the two Schemes and hence the number of scholarships disbursed in 2019-20 was higher than 2020-21.

(b) & (c) The process of Scheme revision is a continuous process and various aspects, including revision of the income criteria under the Scholarship Schemes, are looked into by the Ministry during such processes.
