Our students have represented their block at both District and State Level Badminton Competitions and have secured leading positions in all the categories consistently. We are delighted to facilitate Signify’s ‘Khel Jyoti’ Program as it enables our students to enhance their expertise and actualize their expanding potential in badminton even during the evening hours,” said Dr. Suresh Reddy, Director, SRF Foundation.
