The Uttar Pradesh government has planned to start free-of-cost coaching centres at the divisional level in the state for the candidates who will appear in the competitive exams. These coaching centres will come under a new scheme called ‘Mukhyamantri Abhyudaya Yojana’, an official spokesman said here on Saturday.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has decided to set up ‘Abhyudaya’ coaching centres for aspiring candidates preparing to qualify the NEET, JEE (Mains and Advanced), CDS, NDA, UPSC and all other competitive exams.
In a statement, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said, “The state has an ocean of opportunities. Now, with hardwork and dedicated efforts, the government will make sure that the talented and bright youth of Uttar Pradesh are not forced to leave their hometowns in order to receive quality education”.
The candidates for the coaching centres will be selected on the basis of entrance examinations. “A stipend will also be given to selected students,” said the statemen.
The free-of-cost coaching institutes will start functioning from the auspicious day of ‘Basant Panchami’ on February 16 and registration for classes will commence on February 10, he added.
The free coaching facility will provide great support to the poor and deprived students whose guidance will be taken care of by the state government, the spokesman said.
A statement said the coaching centres will be set up under the direct supervision of the CM at divisional level. “In the next phase, Abhyudaya coaching will be set at districts’ level also. The coaching will have a provision of direct counselling for aspiring candidates by senior IAS, IPS and PCS Officers. In case of examinations like NDA and CDS, thorough training will be given by the Principal of UP Sainik School. Along with this, there will be separate classes for NEET and JEE exams. All the lectures and complete study material covering the entire syllabus of various examinations will also be made available online,” said the statement.
“To enable the candidates to get quality study material, an e-learning content platform will be created at the state level under the direction of the Divisional Commissioner. Videos of various officials sharing their experiences related to the preparation of the exams will be uploaded on the platform,” added the statement.
It also said that live sessions, seminars and videos will help students access study material and a guide on how to prepare for the exam.
