To all those who have known and are familiar with the persona of Prof TRA and his work in diverse fields
As you are aware, Professor T.R. Anantharaman laid a strong foundation for metallurgical education and research in independent India. To carry forward his work his students and colleagues have initiated a trust, now known as TR ANANTHARAMAN EDUCATION AND RESEARCH FOUNDATION (TRA-ERF).
I am happy to inform you that (i) Donations to TRAERF are exempt from Income Tax U/S 80G (5) (vi) of the IT Act 1961 and (ii) We have been given permission under the Foreign Currency Regulation Act (FCRA) to receive donations in foreign currency. A List of Contributors so far is given on the next page.
Initial funds for the Trust have been provided by a few members of the Trust Board and its well-wishers. This stands at a sum of nearly Rs.40 lakh. Many other students of Professor TRA and well wishers of this initiative have expressed their desire to contribute to the Trust funds.
An initial target of Rs. 100 lakh for individual contributors and an equal amount from Government and corporate contributors will allow us to set up a reasonable corpus the proceeds of which can be utilized to meet the aims of the Trust designed to promote education and research in selected fields. As you may have noted it devolves upon every one of us to contribute to nurturing skilled human resources for which a need is extensively felt by the country in every one of the technical fields.
I welcome any suggestions you may have for advancing these aims.
I request you kindly to help the stated cause with your valuable donations.
Please use the Payment Options link for sending in your contribution.
