Three students from SGC were selected for IIMs, While 18 others were selected in other reputed B-schools of India like IRMA,TISS and School of Management, Pondicherry. One alumni of SGC, Tarique-ur-Rahman, of IIM Lucknow, says “It is because of Dr. Das and SGC, that I have scaled such heights !”
“The Beautiful Mind”, yet another brain child of Dr. Das arranges free coaching and mentoring to students from nursery to std XII. They are the children of rickshaw pullers and labourers who now aspire to be doctors and engineers.
