Education Interface, an education fair went underway today at the Netaji Indoor Stadium. About 250 stalls by over 100 colleges will dispense information and provide necessary counseling to those who seek career career not only in usual fields like Engineering, Medical, Hotel Management, Hospital Management and Polytechnic but also in marines and such.
State Education Minister, Partha Chatterjee who was the guest of honor stressed that CM has put a special thrust on education and he himself had discussed about a robust indulgence on technical education with Ashima Patra, Minister of Technical Education, on way to inaugurate the fair.

” the online admission procedure initiated last year will be further strengthened this year”.
We have also instituted a monitoring system to regulate the feedback on grants provided to various institutions and there will be stern eye on how the endowment has been utilized and whether quality is maintained as promised”.
