Party has become sensitive to financial constraints of most candidates from the state
In a bid to increase the passing percentage of students from Maharashtra in the civil services exams conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) for IAS, IFS, IPS and other civil services, the Shivvidya Prabhodhini under the aegis of the Yuva Sena will launch free coaching classes for IAS aspirants. In a statement released here yesterday, the scheme will be launched on January 23, the birth anniversary of late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray.
Sena deputy leader Vijay Kadam informed that 100 students will be given free guidance, coaching and all study material needed to clear the UPSC exams from the preliminary and mains and right up to the interviews. He said that until now the Sena had been only felicitating students who had cleared the UPSC exams. The Sena until now had been providing free of cost accommodation at MLA hostel flats of Sena legislators for IAS aspirants coming to Mumbai from rural Maharashtra.
He said that taking note of the financial constraints encountered by some IAS aspirants from poor families, the party has decided to offer free of cost guidance and coaching for these students. The full details of the scheme are available on the Shivvidya Prabhodini website – www.shivvidyaprabhodini.co.in. The application for the free coaching camp will be available online between December 17 and December 31. The entrance test for the camp will be held on January 5, results will be declared on January 11 and the classes will commence from January 23.
