Samaj Kalyan Scholarship  

Since the Revolution in Education started during the times of "Mahatma Jyotiba Phule" & his wife "Savitribai Phule", who contributed their entire life in imparting education for the poor & needy and especially for the women of the unfreed India.

It was this couple who started the first school for women in Bhidewada, Budhwar peth, Pune, later on in the Independent India it was Bharatratna Dr.B.R.Ambedkar who was the follower of Mahatma Jyotiba Phule garnished the revolution by preparing an agenda for the depressed classes in the sector of Education, so that these classes avail the various facilities in the field of Education.

In today's India, we find that there are various bills already existing for the betterment & improvement of these suppressed classes in the field of Education, jobs, culture, politics etc. There are many facilities already prevailing in the system. But inspite of this the literacy percentage is very low in these communities.

The reason behind this is to why the literacy percentage is so low is a topic of reasoning & so a deep thought has to be given and we all have to really be very careful & become very concern about these facts because the progress of India lies in the literacy of these backward classes/minorities and in the literacy of the women.

If we really think in a rationale way, we will come to a conclusion that inspite of the tremendous networking of Marketing organized by the Government into the rural sectors, the people are not able to enjoy the benefits regarding the same, because they are unaware about the various schemes & programs organized. Due to this the various yojanas or Government schemes doesn't prove successful or very less amount of people are streamlined for this purpose. Hence the vision of the Government is not materialized accordingly. To strengthen the vision of the Government MET thus proves its skills to work in parallel views with the Government for eradicating unemployment by spreading education throughout such classes.

MET has its tremendous networking in Marketing and thus it has spread its wings in the rural sector as well. This enables MET to reach to the grass root level of such depressed classes and create awareness for the various scholarship programs conducted by the Government through the Bharat Sarkar Shishyavrutti Yojana. Hence to a larger extent MET has proved its capabilities to complete the vision of the great dignitaries of India towards the literacy programs and will strive to do so in its nearest future as well.
MET offers various programs in Education like BSc-HS, BCA, BBA which are affiliated to the world renowned Pune University which is known for its varied prosperity & culture in education.

Keeping in mind the prospects of these current modern education MET also plays an important role in the social field by diversifying these programs towards such masses & making them aware of such programs which can help them get better jobs, foreign internships, higher education abroad, come up with their own business etc.

Thus apart from such Educational schemes, MET also strives independently to help students who fall under such categories & also help those who are under poverty.

By doing this MET strengthens the mission of the Government to impart education to the depressed classes to the fullest!
