What is OTR?

OTR stands for One-Time Registration. The government has introduced this process to ensure that each student can only apply for one scheme, preventing multiple applications and ensuring that the right beneficiaries receive the scholarships. This system tracks student data using face authentication, Aadhaar card details, and scholarship information.

One Time Registration (OTR) is a unique 14-digit number issued based on the Aadhaar/Aadhaar Enrolment ID (EID) and is applicable for the entire academic career of the student.
