Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has re-introduced its earlier scheme of providing reimbursement to reserved category students for specific courses , because the university ran out of its allocated funds last year.

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).
