Special and free coaching classes for Class X, XII Delhi students to begin next week
The Minister said the Delhi government is working "tirelessly" to provide "world-class" education
Coaching classes for students hailing from financially poor backgrounds will begin next week. This will happen under the Jai Bhim Mukhyamantri Pratibha Vikas Yojana, an official statement informed on Thursday, July 21.
Social Welfare Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam held a review meeting with senior officers and coaching operators of the scheme and took stock of the preparations for the classes, the statement said, as stated in a report by PTI.
The Government of Delhi, under the Jai Bhim Mukhyamantri Pratibha Vikas Yojana, will be offering free coaching to meritorious students from scheduled castes (SC), scheduled tribes (ST) and poor families, who have passed Class X and Class XII with good scores, it said.
"We will start classes from next week for the children passing 10th and 12th this year to finish their course on time and guidelines will be issued to all the coaching operators. Children from poor families in Delhi have cleared the toughest competitive exams and joined prestigious institutions like IIT and medical colleges," Gautam said.
The Minister said the Delhi government is working "tirelessly" to provide "world-class" education. He also inquired about the status of children appearing in JEE and other competitive exams this year.
"We will ensure that the beneficiary students of the scheme are not left behind and their classes start on time," he said.
A felicitation ceremony will also be organised for children who have cleared JEE and other competitive exams this year, Gautam said.
