The Anant scholarship aims at helping meritorious students, who come from families with a monthly income less than 5000, to help them continue their higher education. The scholarship disbursement ceremony was held on 3rd August at Netaji Indoor Stadium in the presence of eminent guests such as NR Narayana Murthy, chairman, Emeritus-Infosys Technologies Ltd; Sovan Chatterjee, mayor of Kolkata; Prof D.P. Tripathi, MP Rajya Sabha and Ravindra Chamaria, chairman, Infinity Group. Gokul Agarwalla, management consultant of the US, Md Asif Iqbal, associated with Price water house Coopers also spoke on this occasion.
The guests were felicitated by Nupur Chamaria. The goal of Anant is to assist 1, 00, 000 students by 2020, leading to a marked development of the nation. Anant opens an account for the students where they send their annual scholarship amount of 6000 in an installment of 500 per month. Anant gives preference to physically-challenged students and provides 50 per cent of the scholarship to girl students. This CSR initiative of the Anant group which began last year, gave out scholarships to over 5000 students from various schools of West Bengal in 2012.
Jadavpur and Presidency Alumni Associations, NCE Bengal, Lady Brabourne College and other reputed organisations are the academic partners of Anant. Some of the donors of Anant are Bengal Chambers, Rupa, Srei Foundation, TCI, Srijan, Orion, etc. Saba Afren and Pradyut Kr Gorui, recipients of the Anant scholarship, talked about how Anant is paving their way to a brighter future. The mayor and Tripathi praised the efforts of the Infinity Group. NR Narayana Murthy asked the scholars to keep in mind the efforts of Anant and also to work for the society once they attained success in life. He added, "Like the Infinity Group, more people should spend money on education."
