This initiative underscores JK Tyre's commitment to corporate social responsibility 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.
