He further said that “GAIL will also extend support to these students during their engineering course, by grant of a monthly scholarship.”

Shri S L Raina, Director (HR) said that “such endeavour of the company may not accrue much in the Company's balance sheet but the achievements of these children will certainly add up in the company's social balance sheet.” Congratulating the selected students Shri Raina mentioned that these students will always have a special place in GAIL's context.
