  1. Why this opportunity is only limited to the worker’s sons. And what about those , working hard outside looking for opportunities in your company. If every company thinks this way, then it will demotivate the outside students not to pursue their studies. I sounds like..only the king’s son will be king.

  2. Sir, I believe it should be an open forum for everyone. What about those students whose parents are not tata Steel employee. I am software engineer by profession, getting married in jamshedpur, I was ex TCS employee before. My mother is a native of jamshedpur . Please advice if there is any such option available. Thank you.
