Why Your SRD Grant Might Have Been Rejected
The main requirement for the grant is that you receive no other income, grants, UIF money or NSFAS. If you receive any of these, you would not have been approved then.
Then, you might have been rejected and told that you are 'IRP5 Registered'. This means that databases are picking you up as someone who pays tax which means you're receiving an income.
If the reason you were rejected says that you're receiving UIF and you're not, this could be that the database is picking up old UIF payments or such.
