The USP of this school, according to Satya Narayanan R, founder and chairman of Career Launcher India Limited, would be that students would not be allowed to take tuition.Fact|date=February 2007 Narayanan argued that, "Students go for such tutorials because they do not get proper coaching at their schools/colleges. Our school will, therefore, restrict students from taking tuition and if a student underperforms or is not satisfied with the teaching procedure, the parents can question the school teachers themselves."Fact|date=February 2007
