Here is good news for bright rural students hailing from economically weaker sections of society and aspiring to realise their dream of pursuing medical education.

A trust has been formed by alumni of the country's premier institutions, the National Institute of Technology-Tiruchi (NIT-T) and IIT-Madras, to conduct a six-month full-time residential programme free of cost for 30 students, who have cleared the State Board examination in 2017 to crack NEET 2018.

Established by Prabu G. Kumar of NIT-T and R.V.S. Muralidhar of IIT-Madras and IIM-Kozhikode, with the objective of providing the students a level-playing field with their peers from affluent sections of society, Dr. Radhakrishnan Educational Trust will meet the entire cost of boarding, lodging and study materials, while Seekers Educational Services, with which the Trust has entered into a tie-up, will provide faculty and classrooms.


The Trust will receive applications from students of government and government-aided schools with good marks: above 180 marks in medical cut-off or 1,100 marks out of 1,200. Students, who had appeared for NEET 2017 and scored minimum cut-off marks, will be given preference. A test and interview will be conducted if there are more applicants.

The course will be conducted from October to May next year for the selected students. They will undergo a rigorous coaching programme with about six hours of classes and three hours of tutorials per day for six days per week.

The course will be conducted in three terms of eight weeks each with one week break in between. In addition to NEET syllabus, students will also be trained in English, communication and computer skills. There will also be yoga, prayer and sports sessions every day.

The Trust will utilise a new building constructed by Dakshina Bharat Hindi Prachar Sabha at Thennur for lodging, boarding, tutorials, self-study and sports sessions. Classes will be conducted at the classrooms of Seekers close by.


Separate accommodation will be provided for boys and girls under the care of separate live-in male and female wardens with 24-hours security, and quality vegetarian diet.

The Trust can be contacted for application and additional information either by mail: dret.neet@gmail.com or by phone: 98948 99776 from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. - Monday to Saturday). Applicants can also visit the Dakshina Bharat Hindi Prachar Sabha premises in person.
