The maintenance allowance had been fully released as per scheme guidelines till the end of the last academic year 2019-20. Subsequently, due to COVID-19, the academic institutions across India were closed and only online classes are going on. Since there is no hostel and mess expenditure involved, the maintenance allowance was suspended, till such time students physically join the institutes.
