We started off with two EI centres on August 15 2006 at Vellore and Villupuram. We made the best of facilities money could buy. We rented houses, employed teaching staff, bought computers / books and bought everything we thought was appropriate / required for students. The centres trained tamil medium students (students taught in schools where the medium of instruction is Tamil) in the classes of VI to X. Following the success of these two centres, we opened another at Chennai on August 15 2008 and another one at Cheyyar on January 10 2010. We have plans to open more such EI Centres.
