The ultimate aim of education should be to inculcate the spirit to work for the gain of society above self-interest”

Private institutions are doing a lot of advancement in the educational field and it is time they get recognition for their work.”
Anurag Vats,(B.Tech) one of the beneficiaries of fee waiver said, “Post my father’s demise it has been very difficult for us to make the ends meet. Our home runs on the Pension of my grandfather and the little money that my mother makes by working as an Anganwadi worker. I am thankful to the University for providing me the fee waiver, it is a great help for me. I want to complete my education at the earliest and get a well-paying job so that my mother is not forced to work.”
