Comment from group head
Ashima Bhat, “Students are the future of our nation, and their education is important. The pandemic has adversely impacted many families across the country and the education of many students is at risk.
During this time of crisis, we believe in supporting talented young individuals who are going through hardships due to the pandemic and are at risk of dropping out from schools or colleges.
As a socially responsible corporate citizen we will lend our support in every manner possible.”
