As part of IndianOil Vidushi, a flagship CSR project, 46 of the 56 girls who underwent coaching at IndianOil Vidushi Centres in Bhubaneswar and Noida have cleared the JEE mains examination, the results of which were announced on Tuesday. 

The girls are now preparing to qualify JEE Advanced exams which is the second level of exams after JEE Mains. JEE Advanced is regarded globally as one of the most challenging undergraduate admission tests.

OCL’s Vidushi project provides specialised coaching to girl students from economically backward sections for competitive exams like JEE Mains and JEE Advanced.

"We are happy that 82 percent of the girl students who underwent coaching at the two IndianOil Vidushi Centres have cleared the JEE Mains," said Director HR, IndianOil Ranjan Kumar Mohapatra. 28 out of 30 girls from the Bhubaneswar centre and 18 out of 26 girls from the Noida centre achieved this feat, he said.
 
IndianOil Vidushi Super30 was conceived in 2018 in association with the centre for social responsibility and leadership (CSRL), an educational NGO, to help girls from financially weaker sections gain admission into prestigious engineering institutes such as IITs, NITs, CETs and IIITs. Young girl aspirants from different States are provided specialised hands-on coaching and mentoring after Class XII to succeed in Central and State engineering entrance examinations. Thirty girls each are selected for Bhubaneswar and Noida centres on merit-cum-means basis through a written test and personal interview from a participation of approximately 3,000 girls.
 
IOCL bears the complete cost of 11-months of intensive coaching, study material, food and accommodation for the girl students, besides various consumables. Each student is provided with health insurance of Rs 1 lakh for one year to cover any exigencies.
 
IndianOil Vidushi is being implemented initially for a period of five years, during which 300 girls will be directly benefitted.
