(This news is a bit delayed here on this blog, nevertheless, inspirational.)

Reference: DNA, Mumbai print edition, June 15 2017:

Srinagar: Petronet LNG Ltd. (PLL), which started its CSR voyage from western India and traversing South and East, have now reached Northern state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Considering the lack of facilities/faculty in J and K to impart coaching for Engineering Entrance Examination to facilitate admissions to IITs/NITs/other institutions of repute, Petronet LNG Ltd. sponsored 40 underprivileged students in 2016-17 to fulfill their dream of higher engineering education (35 boys and 5 girls) under Petronet Kashmir Super 30 programme in association with Indian Army, CSRL. This 11 months’ residential programme was attended by 40 students (kargil 7, Pulwama 5, Bandipura 6, Baramulla 4, Anantnag 7, Ganderbal 4, Kulgam 1, Tangmarg 2, Ramban 1, Shopian 1, Sopora 1, Nagrota 1).

Despite hardships in Kashmir and educational institutions being closed last year, the project continued with its mission. The declaration of IITJEE results on April 27 2017 saw selection of 28 students (including 2 girls) who were coached under Petronet Kashmir Super 30 cracking the IITJEE mains exams. Six other students will join Regional Engineering Colleges.

Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Hon’ble Minister of State (I/C) Petroleum and Natural Gas and Mr. Chowdhary Zulfkar Ali ji, Hon’ble Minister for Dept. of Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs and Information Dept., J and K, interacted with students of Petronet Kashmir Super 30 at Delhi and felicitated them for their hard work and achievement.

Shri Pradhan expressed happiness that students from underprivileged backgrounds from places like Kupwara, Pulwama, Anantnag, Shopian etc. have shown their determination and got selected in prestigious institutes. He also announced on behalf of Petronet LNG Ltd. that 100 students will be sponsored from Kashmir for engineering entrance next year.
