Mumbai, 05 December 2017: MGL Unnati, the project in its fourth batch performed remarkably with all the 30 students clearing JEE (Mains) examination and more than 50% of the students qualifying for IIT by clearing the JEE (Advance) successfully. MGL will be felicitating the17 students who cleared JEE (Advance) in 2016-17 by extending one-time scholarship support to them.
Mahanagar Gas Limited (MGL) being a socially responsible Corporate saw the need to help meritorious children from weaker sections of the society in Maharashtra, who have the talent to compete in IIT/NIT but do not have the means to bear the expenses of costly private coaching institutes. Hence MGL tied up with Centre for Social Responsibility and Leadership Delhi in 203-14, which conducts Abhayanand Super 30 Program of coaching students for JEE entrance exams in various parts of the country. This association saw the launch of MGL Unnati, the flagship CSR intervention of MGL.
Under the project MGL Unnati in the last five years, MGL has reached out to 110 students. 95% of the students mentored under this project have been able to secure admission in technical studies. 80% of students have cleared JEE (Mains) and 35% have qualified in JEE (Advance).
The year 2017 -18 is going to be a milestone year for the project, when the first batch of MGL Unnati students (2013-14) are expected to graduate out of their engineering colleges and secure jobs.
Shri Rajeev Mathur, Managing Director, MGL mentioned “Corporate Social Responsibility at MGL is not just a practice; it’s a core value which is merged in the mission and vision of the company working for a sustainable future and bringing about a radical change in the lives of individuals. The objective of this initiative is to give an opportunity to meritorious youngsters from economically weaker sections to rise above their limitations and achieve their dreams. The youngsters should take maximum advantage of this program and mentor other students from economically fragile background whenever such opportunity arises.”
