The total number of scholarships will be divided amongst the State Boards based on the State’s
population in the age group of 18-25 years, after segregating share of CBSE and ICSE on the basis of number of students passing out from various Boards in the country.

No you are not eligible.
Scholarship is only for CBSE board students. We will have to wait till there is something similar from Tamil Nadu State Board.
