Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today sanctioned Rs. 35.5 lakh to Syeda Salva Fatima so that financial difficulty does not become a hindrance in her long cherished dream of becoming a full-fledged commercial pilot.

Ms Fatima, a graduate from Dr BR Ambedkar Open University, is the first Muslim woman from the old city in Hyderabad to pursue the course, the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said in a statement.

She has received the financial support to undergo Multi Engine Rating and Type Rating Training Course for pilots.

Rao today gave her a letter sanctioning the financial support. “With this money, Ms Fatima will become a full-fledged commercial pilot after completion of the training. Ms Fatima has thanked the Chief Minister for the help,” it said.

Earlier, MLC Farooq Hussain and MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi had requested the government to consider Ms Fatima’s request.

‘As such, the income of the family is very low and they cannot afford the huge fees and requested the government for financial support. The financial assistance would be released to Telangana State Aviation Academy when the applicant takes admission there,’ it said.

The sanction letter is based on verification of details of the applicant by minorities’ welfare director, who mentioned in his report that her father works in a bakery and her husband is an employee in a private company.
