A 17-year-old girl from Telangana has beaten all odds to secure a high rank in JEE 2020. Haritha Chennaiah, the daughter of a sanitation worker in Hyderabad, managed to achieve 1187th rank in the JEE (Advanced), becoming the first person from her family to have achieved such a feat.
Chennaiah, who is a student of Telangana Social Welfare Residential School, was felicitated for her feat by the Secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB) CEO Ajith Reddy on Friday.
