SC/ST students of IFBI, received a appointment orders from bank
Chennai,17th sept : Thirty-two students belonging to the SC/ST
communities on Friday received appointment letters from a private bank
after completing a six-month training programme in Banking, Finance,
Insurance and Mutual Funds at the Institute of Finance, Banking and
Insurance (IFBI).

The training programme was fully funded by the Tamil Nadu Adi Dravidar
Housing Development Corporation (TAHDCO). Speaking to reporters after
distributing the appointment letters, A. Tamilarasi, Minister for Adi
Dravida Welfare, said as part of the government's efforts to provide
employment opportunities to the SC/ST students the training programme
was conducted on Banking, Finance and other related subjects.

The actual fee for the course was around Rs 85,000 and these students
were charged only Rs 30,000. The State government had provided free
education to the SC/ST students and their entire expenses from class
VI to Plus Two was borne by the government, which amounted to Rs 3.43
crore. Similarly, it also had spent on scholarships to the tune of Rs
3.47 crore for those who were admitted to higher secondary levels, she

In the last four years, the department had received Rs 125 crore,
which was spent on providing scholarships and imparting training on
various trades for those who could not complete their school
education, she said. When the 32 students joined the institute, those
in the organisation were apprehensive whether the students would be
able to complete the training successfully, said S. Venkatesh,
president of IFBI.

The apprehension was mainly due to their social background. However,
their apprehension was proved wrong and the entire batch completed
their training successfully and were able to get placements in the
private bank, he said.
