Tamil Nadu launches 24 hour helpline for students
02 March 2018 Current Affairs: Calming the students over the stressful situation created because of the ongoing exam fever, the State of Tamil Nadu has launched a 24 hour helpline for the first time in the country.

This helpline would provide information on education and offer guidance to the students.

Chief Minister K Palaniswami formally launched the toll-free number 14417 through the 24-hour Education Guidance Centre set up at the Secretariat that would offer information relating to school education and offer guidance to students.

Palaniswami launched the facility at a function, following the announcement in the Assembly that a toll-free helpline would be set up at Rs 2 crore. Earlier, the Education Minister K A Sengottaiyan had informed that a special student helpline shall be set up.

This would serve as a platform where students and parents can get their grievances addressed. And career guidance will also be provided for higher secondary students.

This will be of great help for the students in rural areas.
