Free coaching for JEE, NEET aspirants under Abhyudaya Scheme


A free coaching programme - Abhyudaya Scheme - will begin from today. The Scheme is aimed at helping aspirants from diverse backgrounds such as rural areas, poor families and marginalised sections, who are not able to afford private coaching services for appearing in competitive examinations. Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath launched the Abhudaya Scheme on February 15 to provide free coaching to the aspirants for the NEET, JEE (Main and Advanced), and other competitive exams. Under the scheme, separate classes will be held for NEET and Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) aspirants. All the lectures and complete study material will be made available online.

Under the scheme, separate classes will be held for NEET and Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) aspirants. All the lectures and complete study material will be made available online. According to the UP Government data, 50,000 students will be provided free coaching in the first phase and five lakh youths are appearing for the online test. “I want to assure everyone that these classes will help aspirants achieve their goals," the chief minister said as per a media report. Coaching centres under the scheme will be set up first at the divisional level and later at the district level in the second phase. The Chief Minister highlighted that the scheme is for the youth’s holistic development and will offer coaching similar to that in Kota, Rajasthan, and Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh. The minister further said that existing infrastructure will be utilised for the best possible results. As many as 50-100 students will be allowed to attend the classes physically but if classes are continued in online mode, around one crore youth will be benefitted, the CM said.
