He also interacted with students in the ATL lab funded by NITI Ayog to encourage students to develop interest in STEM and internet of things. The chairman was also taken on a guided tour of the recently established Satya Devi Resource Centre for Blind, as well as its parent department – Special Educational Needs Department that caters to students with various learning and physical disabilities. The Chairman expressed his delight at the impressive infrastructure created by the school, which places it in the same league as the best schools of the country, especially considering that the school is only fifteen years old. He viewed the school as the best “way to honour the memory of great visionary Late DP Dhar who is one of the greatest contributors in strengthening the socio-economic fabric of the state.”.
