Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia said on the occasion, 'Since 2015, the number of students getting selected in IIT-JEE have risen from 40-50 to over 300 selections today. This has been the result of constant hard work of the teachers and students of Delhi government schools.'

'We thank Career Launcher and welcome them in building upon this success. Preparing for competitive examinations is the intended objective, but this exercise will also be intended towards developing a scientific outlook, through exposure to higher applications of science in daily life. I really hope the students make the most of it,' he added.

'The students will get 130 hrs of training, spanning all the four key subjects - Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. The classes, held during after-school hours, from 1900 hrs to 2200 hrs, commenced January 21,' the statement said.
