HT Ludhiana Live - - In & Around -

LUDHIANA: A func­tion to pro­vide schol­ar­ships to needy stu­dents was or­gan­ised at SCD Govern­ment Col­lege for Boys here on Tues­day.

Su­dar­shan K Maini, founder of Maini Group and chair­man of Mahin­dra REVA Elec­tric Ve­hi­cle Com­pany Lim­ited, was the chief guest on the oc­ca­sion.

An alum­nus of the col­lege, Maini passed out in 1950 and stud­ied on schol­ar­ship through­out.

Ad­dress­ing stu­dents, he said: "By 2015, petrol and diesel cars will be put in mu­se­ums and ev­ery In­dian would like to buy an elec­tric car. With a rise in petrol and diesel prices and in­ter­est rates, it will be­come dif­fi­cult to buy a car."

Talk­ing about pro­vid­ing schol­ar­ships to stu­dents, he said: "Money should not be­come an ob­sta­cle in their stud­ies. How­ever, the cri­te­ria of pro­vid­ing schol­ar­ship is not money, it is the re­quire­ment." He de­cided to pro­vide 10 schol­ar­ships to the needy and tal­ented stu­dents of the col­lege.
