Friends thank you all for showing interest to meet on the occasion of our Global Alumni Meet.
Golden Jubilee batches have been contributing and donating to our alma matter in the range of 10lakhs to 60lakhs and even have instituted scholarships/awards in name of the batch etc.
Each of us is expected to think on similar lines, and help in creating a corpus to serve the cause of PECOSA.
You may recommend businesses to sponsor a banner on the PECOSA website too.
