Mysore/Mysuru: In a significant step towards promoting education and empowering communities, JK Tyre has joined hands with the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) and Protean Vidyasaarathi to launch the ‘JK Tyre Shiksha Sarthi Scholarship Scheme’ exclusively for the daughters of heavy motor vehicle drivers from the States of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

This initiative underscores JK Tyre’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and aims to make quality education accessible to the driver’s girl child. The newly launched scholarship programme is tailored for various undergraduate courses, offering financial assistance ranging from Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 25,000 per annum.

This monetary support is aimed at easing the financial burden on families associated with the transportation sector, allowing deserving students to pursue their academic aspirations without hindrance.
