Telangana: 134 Social Welfare Residential Students Secure Admissions in IITs/NITs
Sons and daughters from underprivileged backgrounds never dreamt of cracking the IIT-JEE entrance exam if not for the free long-term intensive coaching programs launched by the Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society (TSWREIS).
It’s a matter of immense pride that as many as 85 social welfare residential students secured admission in the premier IITs and 49 students in NITs in the first round of seat allocation this year.
Also, 12 students bagged seats in central Government Funded Technical Institutions (GFTIs) while 7 students in IIITs. The list of successful students included sons and daughters of farm labourers, daily-wage workers, auto drivers, security guards, drivers, tea sellers, mechanics, vendors, vegetable sellers, etc.
The students proved conclusively that talent requires right encouragement, competitive environment and opportunity. In appreciation of this stupendous feat, the minister for Scheduled Caste Development Department, Kopuula Eeshwar congratulated the students and teachers and said, “the government of Telangana is committed to providing the best quality education in the government’s welfare residential educational institutions on par with the corporate sector .
Ronald Rose, Secretary, TSWREIS, congratulated the students and said “teachers deserve a lot of praise for their devotion and nurturing the dreams of a better future for less privileged students.
TSWREIS has been offering the top-class coaching classes on par with the noted private coaching institutions to prepare its students for IITs and NITs”. He further noted that, number of students securing seats in IITs/NITs have been witnessing a significant increase year after year. In 2020, 84 students made it to IITs/NITs, while in 2021, 134 students secured seats, a remarkable achievement in itself”.
