KIIT to provide free Education to the children of COVID 19 deceased

I am extremely grateful to KIIT – Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology for fulfilling my request to help the children whose mother/father are deceased due to COVID 19. Any such children seeking admission to any course at KIIT University in this year's academic session or next year (2020-21 or 2021-22) shall have their fees waived for the entire duration of their respective courses. I feel proud to be part of the continued efforts of our KIIT and KISS family during these pandemic times.#KIITKISSCares #KIITKISSFightsCorona
