A good initiative for deserving students. All students would be of General merit only, no reservation quota is provided for these scholarships. In my view, students and parents should read the self-declaration about income ( carefully because, if found to be incorrect, then the entire scholarship goes and FIITJEE can even take legal action. The hostel fee waive-off is for accommodation only (not for food and transport) and based on marks from Paper 1 and Paper 2.
