PFMS Scholarship Schemes 2020 – Registration Portal

PFMS Scholarship 2020: PFMS Scholarship – PFMS (Public Finance Management System) is a support based initiative offered by the central government to channelize scholarships directly to the intended users without the need of any middlemen engaging in disbursal of scholarship amount.  It allows the students to track the payment status of all centrally-sponsored schemes and central sector schemes for which the payment is made through DBT (Direct Benefit Transfer Mode). The portal also enlists information on some of the scholarship schemes

PFMS portal was initially intended to monitor four flagship schemes of Government of India namely, MGNREGS, PMGSY, NRHM and SSA in states of Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Bihar and Punjab. However, it was linked to the financial networks of Central/State Governments and agencies of state governments at a later stage. Furthermore, the Government of India announced the DBT scheme in 2013 which was meant to be implemented through the PFMS portal.
