SBI donates Rs 1.2 crore for disabled soldiers' training institute
The State Bank of India (SBI) has decided to donate Rs 1.2 crore to the Queen Mary's Technical Institute (QMTI) in Pune.
The donation money will be used by the institute to improve its training facilities for disabled soldiers.
The QMTI will purchase a modified bus for the disabled soldiers trained in the institute.
The institute was first started in Mumbai in 1917. Then in 1922, it was shifted to Pune.
It provides vocational training to disabled ex-servicemen and soldiers who are said to be unfit for armed force service due to medical reasons.
The institute helps them get long-term medical treatment for different disabilities in proper professional fields.
