This year, too, 1084 students had applied for free education. Out of them 300 have been chosen based on their marks and the financial situation of their respective families.

He personally met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 18, 2020, and impressed upon him the various needs of the Perambalur constituency.
Among the issues Dr. T R Paarivendhar stressed upon include the need for a railway line via Ariyalur-Perambalur-Thuraiyur-Namakkal. He had taken up this issue with Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, too. The latter has written to Dr. T R Paarivendhar that the first survey for the railway line will be taken up shortly.
