Civil services’ coaching for SC/ST candidates will soon begin at the new pre-examination training centre here, said A P Anil Kumar, Minister of Welfare of Scheduled Castes and Backward Castes.

He was inaugurating the opening of the pre-examination training centre build by the SC/ST Welfare Department here on Thursday. The Minister said the centre is equipped with all modern educational facilities.

He said civil services coaching is being given in Thiruvananthapuram now, but it will be extended to the new training centre at Aluva at the earliest.

Coaching for medical and engineering entrance examinations too is on the agenda of the training centre. Training for PSC, CSIR and other examinations will also be included in the plan, he said.

“Education is the most vital element of progress. After coming to power, the UDF Government has initiated several programmes aiming at the welfare of SC/ST tribes.

“As a result, they have got several achievements in many areas, including education.

“ The 88 per cent pass in SSLC exam in the state reveals how much they have progressed in the field of education,” he said.

He said the mess fees of students of pre-matric hostels and model residential schools had been increased.

Anwar Sadath MLA presided over the function.
