The number of aspirants for getting into IITs is increasing every year. However, the available vacancies are not grown in the ratio. The number of aspirants to IIT are 4.7 lacks, where as the total number of students got it to the IITs are less than 14,000. It means less than 3% of students are able to make it. IITs offer the best technical education in the country that many MNCs would compete to hire the students even before they come out of the campus.

Majority of students who could not make it to the good collages, are unable to receive proper education or guidance. So, many are remaining unemployed and sometimes working in a job that is not related to their education. This project by the central government would surely benefit the students who crave for best education.
