To provide knowledge support to aspiring engineers of marginalized communities, National Institute of Technology (NIT-Adityapur) has started free coaching classes for boys and girls of surrounding villages. The Centre for Community Welfare of NIT, as part of its social responsibility programme, has introduced free coaching classes for students of Class VIII-Class XII of adjoining villages. These classes are also intended to prepare students for entrance examination to various engineering colleges.”This will give them an opportunity to study in institutes of repute such as NIT,” said NIT director Ram Babu Kodali on Thursday on the objective of the educational scheme commencing November 1. Several youngsters from Asangi, Ichhapur, Krisnpur and Bergidih, which are adjacent to the government-run-engineering college will benefit from the scheme. “Bright students of the college will be taking classes,” said a senior college faculty who has drafted the scheme. “Actually, our director was keen on NIT serving the local community in a more meaningful manner, therefore, the preparatory classes for the underprivileged youth of the local villages,” said Dr Rajiv Bhusan, professor in charge, (media relations). The college administration has announced that especial effort would be made to enroll the girl students along with the boys so that equal opportunity is available to both in shaping their future. “As per our plan, the college students will conduct the classes as of now, but if required the faculty may join them in future,” said a faculty on anonymity. Sankalp, the outfit constituted by NIT students, to carry out empowerment measures in the fringe areas has a history of organizing tuition classes for the economically backward children of pre-school, primary and secondary school.
