Gift of Education: “FORTUNATE 40” – A social initiative of FIITJEE to help & support the financially deprived students to pursue preparation for IIT-JEE & various other competitive exams

New Delhi: Over the years it was being observed that students from weaker financial segment have tremendous potential and the talent to do well in competitive exams after class 12. They have the aspiration to pursue an engineering program from an IIT or from other premier engineering colleges. To crack JEE Advanced & JEE Main, one requires rigorous training and guidance as talent & potential is just not enough. But due to lack of resources and the wherewithal to pay for a coaching program, these students are deterred from moving ahead with their aspiration. That’s when FIITJEE, premier institute for IIT-JEE training, introduced Fortunate 40 (a social initiative) to help these students to pursue their dream. Constituted in 2008, Fortunate 40 scheme has been instrumental in sending hundreds of students to the IIT’s and other top engineering colleges. As a social initiative, meant for deserving students from economically weaker section of the society, Fortunate 40 aims at providing best coaching to meritorious, serious & deserving students thus enabling them to achieve their goal and grab Top Ranks in JEE (Advanced & Main) and other Competitive Exams.

This year Fortunate 40 selection test is scheduled on 2nd February 2020 (Sunday). Students will have to register for the test before 30th January 2020. Selected students will be offered the scholarship. Forms are available online or at FIITJEE centres across India. The details of Fortunate 40 is available at

“Fortunate 40 batches are created at every FIITJEE centre across the country. “Our focus in all our batches including Fortunate 40 is to help students develop IQ, Logical & Analytical Thinking so that they start approaching the subjects with a whole new perspective” said Mr. Partha Halder, B.Tech (Chemical Engineering) – Centre Head at FIITJEE, Punjabi Bagh centre, New Delhi. 

Every year thousands of students in India belonging to humble backgrounds are forced to forego their aspiration owing to financial constraint.  Fortunate 40 is a boon for those students to keep their aspiration alive. Selected students will be entitled to avail upto 100% scholarship. The scheme is meant for 2 student categories viz Class VIII (going to Class IX in 2020) & Class X (going to Class XI in 2020) to avail  4 year & 2 year classroom program respectively.
