Last year, in 2018 , Indira Gandhi National Open University experimented with full fee waivers for SC/ST students for specific number of course. The fee waiver scheme was applicable for certificate courses, diploma courses and all graduate & post graduate courses including, bachelors of library education, science, education, tourism, commerce, humanities , social work and computer education

As a result,IGNOU developed an expenditure more than the allocated budget. It has now asked the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) to fund them with Rs. 32.8 crore , as reported by The Indian Express.

They have a plan of opening up online portals for reimbursement of fee for SC/ST students under the SCSP/TSP (Scheduled Caste Sub-Plan and Tribal Sub-Plan) scheme. Students would be able to claim reimbursement of their fee online and get it directly transferred to their bank accounts under DBT (Direct Benefit Transfer).

According to the guidelines, the claims for reimbursement will be accepted latest by February 20, 2019.
