100 IIT and medical students who are academically talented but financially strapped will receive leadership, critical thinking, and communication training from the Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IITGN), in collaboration with the non-profit Dakshana and businessman Ruyintan Mehta. The majority of the chosen pupils will come from rural India. From September 1 through 30, there will be training.

Students at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNV) have received assistance from Dakshana in their preparation for the JEE Main and JEE Advanced exams required for admission to the IITs. The JNVs are residential schools for talented rural students run by the union government.

“The IITGN Dakshana Leadership Programme is a method to give disadvantaged students an opportunity to be on an equal footing before they begin their journey at an IIT and help them attain their potential through crucial skill development,” says the program’s website. In a statement released by IIT Gandhinagar, Mehta remarked, “It is my way of giving back.

There will be 100 Dakshana scholars from the IITGN branches in Pune, Bangalore, and Hyderabad participating in the first Dakshana Leadership Program. “They have been doing incredibly well in their Dakshana IIT-JEE preparation. These children, who were chosen for rigorous coaching based on their academic record, performance in Classes 10 and 12, and results from Dakshana’s unique testing, came from Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas and other government institutions around India. The parents or guardians of these students often make less than Rs 2 lakh per year “The declaration read. The chosen students will be mentored in the fundamentals of critical thinking, leadership, and communication.
