A total of 30 children who lost their families in the riots here last year, will get monthly scholarships, District Magistrate said on Thursday.

The district authorities have identified 30 students who would be provided scholarships under the scheme. While school students will be provided a monthly scholarship of Rs 1000, students pursuing professional courses will get Rs 1500 per month, District Magistrate Kaushal Raj said.
