I am impressed by the dedication, devotion and perseverance showed by the students of Aryans Group the field of Innovations. It is a matter of pride for the entire Kashmir Valley that the students are taking care of the people of their valley and innovating social projects for them which can also change the life of these people, added Dutt.

Sharma said that I must congratulate Aryans team who thought of making such cost effective projects. We know that Dal lake which is heart of Kashmir & is famous in entire world for its pristine beauty is losing its charm due to heavy pollution, encroachments, unplanned growth of hamlets etc. I hope seabin would be a perfect solution for these all problems, he added.

There are a total 3500 students studying in Aryans in which 2000 students are from J&K. More than that, not only in innovations but also in the merit list of IKG-PTU, MRS-PTU, Punjabi University etc. in the last 14 years, these students have brought laurels and pride to the institute.
