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.

Hyderabad, October 12, 2017 : A team of five students from an engineering college in Telangana has been selected for the prestigious NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge.

The team from SR Engineering College, Warangal, will participate in the fifth annual challenge to be held on April 12-14, 2018, in Huntsville, Alabama, US.

It is one of the four teams from India short-listed to compete in the challenge. Students from 23 countries are participating in the challenge to create a buggey designed to traverse the simulated surface of moon.

The team, which will prepare a moon buggy design, report and submit their idea, will be led by faculty Manoj Chaudhary. It includes P. Paul Vineeth, Prakash Raineni, P.Sravan Rao, Rondla Dilipreddy Aand Venishetty Sneha, said a statement.

Congratulating the students, SR Engineering College Secretary A.Madhukar Reddy said it was a great opportunity to design, build, and test technologies that enable rovers to perform in a wide variety of environments.

The NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge began as the NASA Great Moonbuggy Race and was first held in in 1994, 25 years after the first manned Apollo landing on the moon.

The challenge now focuses on National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s current plans to explore planets, moons, asteroids and comets.

During its 20-year run, the Great Moonbuggy Race engaged more than 10,000 students and demonstrated that these budding scientists and engineers were capable of complex work. (IANS)
