Govt sends Tk 328.14 crore for stipends of nearly 20 lakh students

The Education Ministry has sent Tk 328.14 crore for stipends of 19.92 lakh students of 27,000 educational institutions in 492 upazilas across the country.

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Monday inaugurated the distribution activity of stipend for the 2019-20 FY (January to June) through a virtual meeting, said a press release of the ministry concerned.

The money was sent through G2P system that means the stipend money will be sent to the mobile account of the every student from Bangladesh Bank. The students will get the stipend money on Wednesday.

Dipu Moni said earlier the scholarship money was given to the students in manual system as the students had to face difficulty in getting the money but now all the scholarship activities under the Ministry of Education have been digitized.

“As a result of conducting scholarship activities through online, the scholarship money will reach to mobile account of students directly through G2P system.”

The students will get their money quickly while the money and time of the government will be saved for the digital process, she said.
