Mr. Surajit is from West Bengal. He lost his father when he was 7 years old. After completing 10+2 he wanted to continue his regular studies, but due to financial problems he was unable to continue, therefore he took admission through correspondence. Looking for a better livelihood they moved from West Bengal to Delhi 5 years back. After coming to Delhi, he started hunting for a Job, however, wherever he tried it seemed fruitless. Mr. Surajit mentioned that he was very depressed and his future seemed to be terrifying with no hope. He was too scared to face life. One fine morning as he was reading the newspaper he came across an article about Unnati and joined the Delhi, Badarpur centre. After training for 70 days in Unnati, he was placed in DTDC as Customer Care Assistant through campus placement at Unnati Center, within 6 months time he was promoted as Customer Service Executive, handling all the outgoing and incoming mails/calls for East Zone. He worked with DTDC for one and half year. While working with DTDC he persistently tried to know/learn everything about the business and was preparing himself for seeking greater opportunities. He says it was Unnati that instilled in him the spirit of “I CAN DO IT” and to be determined in whatever he does. After working for one and half years, he decided to start a franchise of the same company. Initially he was in need of some money (approximately Rs. 2,00,000/-) to pay for the Service Tax Registration and Security Deposit. He had saved some amount in one and half year and took some amount as loan and started his venture by taking franchise from DTDC.
Today, he is the proud owner of this franchise company and he has employed 4 staffs under him. He is paying remuneration of Rs.34, 000 to these employees every month. He thanked UNNATI for giving him such a platform and said; “I wouldn’t have made it this far without the support and guidance of UNNATI.”
We are very proud of students like Surajit whose goals and growth have been stupendous! We wish him more and more success in life.
