Total Fund Raised for GAABESU Admission Grant - Rs 10 lacs


History and Success of GAABESU Admission Grant Programme

By Asim Deb, 1977ETC

GAABESU Adminssion Grant has started in 2006 at my batchmate Arnab’s house (Arnab Banerjee, 77 ETC) when his wife condemned the entire BEC alumni community, reason being a girl from a Midnapore district town did qualify through JEE but was shown the door by BESU as her father was financially challenged. I tried with the then VC if BESU can help, but I failed while Prof Shantanu Karmakar came forward.

On spot on that day. Rs.30,000/- was collected. Arnab was the first to come forward & then myself-. Then Pradosh-da (Ghosh, 67 Civil) arranged some fund from Delhi Alumni. The girl finally got admitted (Shantanu was in Delhi; & he came personally to my house to collect the cheque).

That was the beginning. Since then every year I am arranging an average of Rs.50-60 thousands for GAABESU. Main contributors are Debabrata Guha (77 Electrical), myself (except last year) & Pradosh-da (from Delhi Alumni). We ensured every financially challenged candidates could finally get their berth in BESU, since 2006. Thanks to Rajdeep Datta & Lt.Col Anjan Ghosh too.

1.       This year, for Admission fund the collection so far is Rs.332,000/- (Three Lac & thirty-two thousands), & have carry forward of Rs.36,000/- from previous years; so the total now is Rs.368,000/-.

2.      We are expecting more response; mostly from my 1977 batch.

3.       With some more inflow, we intend to make a corpus fund (FD); to generate enough annual interest to support 3-4 such candidates every year.
