Impetus Group Manager Sanjoy said, about 15 years back, most of the students pursued courses as per the wishes of their parents.
Such decisions however proved disastrous to the educational careers of many students as the options their parents had chosen for them were not suitable to them at all, he added.
Saying that the fair is being organized to avoid such instances Sanjoy added that the fair would give necessary support to the students in finding the right career option and institute.
Edufest 2011 is offering counseling and direct admission facilities to the visitors.
