The Minister for Economy says some students on Tertiary Education Loan Scheme and Toppers Scheme will not be eligible for the $50 assistance.
Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum highlighted this while announcing the roll-out of the assistance for those who are not getting any other form of assistance.
Sayed-Khaiyum says these are students who are already receiving allowances hence why they will not be entitled.
He says the $50 assistance is particularly targeted for those in the informal sector, those who do not qualify under any other assistance scheme and are not employed.
Sayed-Khaiyum has also revealed people on social welfare assistance are also not eligible.
