Prime Minister's Special Scholarship Scheme (PMSSS)- Jammu & Kashmir

About Us

Prime Minister's Special Scholarship Scheme for Jammu and Kashmir

This cell deals with the Implementation of Prime Minister's Special Scholarship Scheme to J&K Students to pursue undergraduate studies outside the State of Jammu and Kashmir. This scheme is constituted for enhancing employment opportunities among youths of UTs of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh to formulate job plan involving public and private sectors. Every year fresh scholarships were given to UTs of J&K and Ladakh candidates to pursue undergraduate studies outside the UTs for improving their skills by providing access to education. The scheme was started in the year 2011 and modified from time to time to make it student friendly. In order to build capacities of the youth of J&K and Ladakh and to enable them to compete in the normal course, this cell is established. Scholarship is awarded to meet the expenditure towards Academic Fees and Maintenance Allowances (for hostel, mess, cost of books and other incidental charges) to candidates who are admitted through AICTE’s counseling process.

Vidya Pratishthan’s Kamalnayan Bajaj Institute of Engineering and Technology (VPKBIET),formerly known as Vidya Pratishthan's College of Engineering (VPCOE), is a college under Savitribai Phule Pune University which is located in Baramati, in Pune district.

    Students Impression

    Myself, Mridul Upadhya Pursuing my B.E. from VPKBIET. I'm very glad to share experience of my utmost vibrant days over here in Campus. Here the atmosphere is full of motivation and innovation. All the faculties are enthusiastic, cooperative, encouraging and humble at the same time. I have found this lush green VPKBIET campus to be a perfect place to nurture oneself. Along with the physical charm, this huge campus has each and every grain which is necessary to develop skills. Here, it's just my 2nd year and till now I have got numerous opportunities to develop my interpersonal skills, creativity skills and to overcome from stage fear. I am proud to be a part of VPKBIET.

    I'm Tapish Verma from Jammu & Kashmir, studying in Vidya Pratishthan's Kamalnayan Bajaj Institute of Engineering and Technology [VPKBIET], Baramati, Pune. I got admission in this Institute on the basis of Prime Minister Special Scholarship Scheme(PMSSS).

    VPKBIET has very good campus and Infrastructure is very beautiful.Most importantthing is the cleanliness of the college and hostels. This is the only college where teachers behave with their students as like as friends. They always support us to participate in many activities. Hostel roomsand bathrooms are very clean and hygienic and there are 3 members per room and the rooms are big enough with facilities. College infrastructure is excellent, sports are conducted, and library is good. Labs are containing all the equipment and the labs are clean and well maintained. There is a special training placement officer who takes responsibility of the students to get placed. Technical and cultural festivals are conducted in the campus and everyone take part in it.
