Appeal for help to the marginalized students:

Kalingamitra Odisha is happy that some our guiding students are going to receive their master degree, where all those students are first generation learners. We came to know that some of our organization affiliated students are struggling to deposit their due amount at Tata Institute of Social Science, Mumbai (TISS, Mumbai) in order to get their result and final degree certificates. We, as an organization tried hard to provide the required due of these students but lastly we are bound to fund raise on behalf of all these students. Kalingamitra runs a Prangya Project which is now mostly support to the admission of marginalized students. But due to the lack of funds, it is unable to support course fees and dues of the students. It is hence, a sincere request to all those well-wishers of Kalingamitra Odisha, Bahujan people and sympathizer of the Ambedkarite movements to donate whatever they can. If we support these students now then these students will play a major role for the development of Ambedkarite movements in the state of Odisha.

Please find the name of students and their discipline at TISS, Mumbai.
  • Subal Meher- M.A in Dalit and Tribal Studies and Action (TISS, Mumbai)
  • Ramakanta Deep- M.A. in Development Studies (TISS, Mumbai)
  • Madhabee Mahanand- M.A in Women Studies (TISS, Hyderabad)
Since 2014, all these students have been working with Kalingamitra Trust, Odisha and Nirveda, Odisha. They are the upcoming leading faces of the Ambedkarite Movement who have been actively participating, organizing, and articulating themselves for years. Somehow, with the help of Kalingamitra Trust, Student Aids, and GoI Scholarship, they struggled hard to get admission and pursue their Master's programs in TISS. This year, they are completing their master's programs at TISS. TISS is a Deemed University and these students have to pay a huge amount of money to get their degrees and certificates from the University. All these students are coming from a financially poor backgrounds, which is very much difficult to deposit the required due amount.

The university has warned the students with a final mail to at least clear the outstanding fees by 07 June 2021 for the declaration of their results. We need altogether an amount of 1,58,180 Rupees for the students to get their degrees and certificates.

1,58,180 Rupees is a very huge amount for us to arrange in such a short period of time. It is a sincere request to the Bahujan family and sympathizers to extend their financial assistance to our friends to get their degrees. Please find the details of the financial breakup.

Subal Meher- needs 59,578 Rupees
Ramakanta Deep- needs 35,152 Rupees
However, the semester’s fee is 19,652 but the Institution is asking to pay the outstanding fee 35,152 Rupees.
Madhabee Mahanand- needs 63,450 Rupees
*includes Hostel Fee- 56,200 (At TISS, Hyderabad, the institute provides them hostel but girls have to pay the fee)
