The government has restarted the NSP Scholarship’s biometric check from August 22 to 25, 2023. This is to double-check the details of applicants and institutions before giving out scholarships. This decision was made after some issues were found with the authenticity of some institutes and beneficiaries for the 2022-23 academic year by the NCAER.

Update Aadhaar for NSP Biometric Authentication?
Students need to finish the NSP biometric check for their scholarships by August 25, 2023. Go to the Institute Camps set up by CSC with the HoI and INO to do this check. You can also do it at the Common Service Center (CSC). If you don’t do the check, your scholarship application will be turned down.
Documents required for Biometric Authentication
If you’re going to the CSC Center for the scholarship biometric check, remember to take your NSP account info like Aadhar Card, Application ID, and login details.
Procedure of Biometric Authentication of Applicants
The CSC will set up biometric check camps at schools for certain students. Students need to give their Aadhar and NSP IDs for this check. The CSC will then check these details using the NSP system. If everything matches, they’ll take a live photo of the student. Once confirmed, the CSC will complete the biometric check. This data will be saved in the CSC system, and the NSP website will show if it was successful or not.
Re-validation by INOs/DNOs for Applicants
If the biometric check is successful, the INO will double-check it. If both the HoI and INO checks at the school pass, the INO will review the application again. Students will get a text saying their application is being checked again by the INO. If the INO doesn’t finish this before the deadline, higher officials (SNO/DNO) will review it. These officials can only mark the application as “Accepted” or “Rejected” during their review.
