The first batch of 23 students from Uttar Pradesh were selected through a written test held at Kanpur, Etawah and Pata in and around GAIL major work centres, in collaboration with the Centre for Social Responsibility and Leadership (CSRL), a non Government Organization in the supervision of a panel of experts headed by Shri Abhyanand, the founder of Utkarsh Superb 30.

The economic criteria of poverty has been taken for children whose family income is not more than Rs.75,000/- per annum. The coaching programme for IIT/NIT exams was started by GAIL with Centre for Social Responsibility and Leadership (CSRL), as a pilot programme at a total cost of Rs. 32 lacs in the year 2009-10. This year the intake for this programme has increased to 60 students.

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.
