After having made its debut in the education sector by acquiring India’s first education loan company Credila Financial Services, the Housing Development Finance Corporation (HDFC) is now launching its first English medium school affiliated to the Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE) in Gurgaon this academic year.
Though the school is scheduled to start functioning from the next academic year (2015-16), the admission process for nursery to class III will begin from this month. Plans for the school are to have classes up to class XII.
The lead to venture into education was headed by Delhi-based HDFC managing director Renu Karnad. Apart from setting up their own school, HDFC is also set to provide school management and other related services.
