Two poor boys from tribal communities who made Bidar proud by gaining admission to IITs , will now receive help from the government.

Deepak Kumar Dattatri, the son of a BSF soldier from Gadlegaon – B village,

and Sandeep Kumar Hanumant, whose father is a milk man in Gogga village, will get education loans by the Department of Social Welfare.

“Karnataka State SC/ ST Corporation will give them loans to cover all their expenses,” Eshwar Khandre, Minister for Municipal Administration and district in-charge minister told The Hindu.

I have already spoken to social welfare Minister H. Anjaneya and secretary Gangaram Baderiya. They have agreed to the proposal. Rashtriya Madhyamika Shiksha Abhiyan commissioner P.C. Jaffer is coordinating with the families and corporation apart from keeping the necessary paper work ready, the minister said.

Philanthropists have extended financial assistance. Bengaluru-based engineer and NIT alumnus B. Kranti Kumar had begun a social media campaign to raise funds for them. 

While Deepak is joining bio chemical engineering in IIT Kharagpur, Sandeep is getting admission in material sciences in IIT Madras. They are the only two boys from Bidar to make it to the premier institutions this year.

Bidar district, considered educationally backward due to its low scores in SSLC and PUC exams, will send two students to IITs this year. Deepak Kumar Dattatri and Sandeep Hanumanth Gogga will start their B.Tech courses from August. The two boys belong to the Bedar tribal community. While Deepak plans to go to IIT Kharagpur, Sandeep will choose IIT Madras.

Deepak’s father Dattatri is a soldier in the Border Security Force stationed in West Bengal. The family hails from Gadlegao-Bujurg village in Basavakalyan taluk. He travelled with his father to Jammu & Kashmir, Rajasthan, and Tripura before joining the Kendriya Vidyalaya in the Bidar Air Force Station. He has admission to Biotech and Biochemical Engineering. He can be contacted at 09741397943.

Sandeep, who studied SSLC in Shakuntala Patil School and Sri Channabasaveshwar Gurukul, wants to study aeronautics. “I might get admission in the material science branch. I will try to shift to aeronautics later if possible,” he said. Sandeep’s father Hanumanth is a milkman in Basavakalyan. He said he does not have the resources to pay the Rs. 5.5 lakh fees. “I am seeking help from donors. Somebody suggested I approach Eshwar Khandre, district in-charge Minister. I am yet to meet him,” Mr. Hanumanth said. He can be contacted at 7353042853.
