The IDIA Charitable Trust and the CAN Foundation have tied-up through a Memorandum of Understanding for supporting IDIA scholars under CAN's flagship project, 'Dhananjay'.

'Dhananjay' aims at facilitating meritorious law graduates in need of economic assistance. It offers a 'monthly sustenance allowance' to the scholars (INR 15,000 to INR 18,000) for the initial one or two years of their practice in any court.

Under this arrangement, a selected lot of 3 IDIA scholars will be inducted into the field of litigation:

IDIA shall recommend a pool of fresh IDIA scholars to CAN for being granted support under 'Dhananjay'. Consequently, CAN has undertaken to give preference to the scholars recommended by IDIA against 3 slots out of a total of 5-6 under 'Dhananjay'.

For this year, the support shall be extended for 10 months, from July 2021 to May 2022.

"While the above tie-up is a synergistic step for both the organisations, it has been undertaken with the hope that it will prove to be inceptive for a relationship that will continue for long, and thus, impact numerous lives for the years to come," a press note issued by the organizations stated.

Managing Trustee of IDIA, Shishira Rudrappa said that this arrangement will prove instrumental in benefitting young and dynamic minds, and enable them to chase their dreams, unscathed by financial hurdles. He indicated that both the organizations may, in the future, collaborate on multiple fronts to multiply the effect of their efforts for their beneficiary students.

CEO of CAN Foundation, Siddharth R. Gupta said that this mutual effort between both the organisations is metaphoric to planting a sapling which is expected to grow into a gigantic tree in the years to come.

"CAN seeks to continue this project for decades, thus aiming to build prospective Senior Counsels at the Bar and Judges adorning the Bench, who shall ensure that the arm of justice efficiently reaches those who cannot afford it," Gupta said.
