IBSD Diector, Dr. Dinabandhu Sahoo, congratulated the students who have successfully passed their Class XII examinations. Sahoo said the students from North east faces several problems in big cities during the admissions process and even more so for the parents, who have to spend a lot of money even before the admissions , for their travel and stay. Therefore, it is better to provide all the information here at home, so that the people don’t have to spend money for going to the cities before admissions.
In order to prepare the students to face the future challenges in big cites, he invited eminent educationists and Principals of top colleges of University of Delhi , to address the problems of the students.
The students and parents were also given individual counselling and information regarding the different courses, the admissions process, scholarships and accomodation options for Northeast students in Delhi.
Prof Sahoo said that more of such programs will be organised in the future in different parts of North east so that good quality education and training, can be imparted to North east students towards building a new India.
