GUWAHATI: Sixteen students of “Manipur 30” have cleared the IIT/JEE exam (prelim), the results of which were declared on Monday.

“Manipur 30” is a project undertaken by the Senapati Brigade of Red Shield Division in collaboration with Centre for Social Responsibility and Leadership (CSRL) wherein meritorious students from poor families are imparted free coaching and guidance for appearing in the exam.
