The students and colleges spent a lot of time doing this. It was expected that the funds would be disbursed in December. But, suddenly in January, you are asked to apply again through an old process,” a college official said. He added that students may not readily agree to redo the process and the college officials to are burdened with several other things. “Many colleges have also not paid salaries in the hope that the scholarship amounts would be reimbursed. The wait has stretched longer now,” they said.
