    बहुत ही नेक कार्य। ईश्वर आपके कार्य मे बरकत दें। मैं राजकीय सेवा में प्रधायपक हूँ। अभी इस स्कॉलरशिप के बारे में पता चला है। अगली बार मेधावी और जरूरतमंद विद्यार्थियों को इसके लिए प्रोत्साहित करूँगा। ताकि उनका भविष्य सुनहरा हो सके। मैंने देखा कि अंतिम डेट फॉर्मअप्लाई की 31 अगस्त है क्या अभी भी बेहद गरीब व मेधावी छात्र का फॉर्म अप्लाई कर सकते हैं
