DEHRADUN: Uttarakhand government will soon start its own ‘Super 30’ batch on the lines of famous coaching center of Anand Kumar in Patna. Dhan Singh Rawat, higher education minister said, “Uttarakhand government will coach aspirants of civil services from underprivileged class who cannot afford exorbitant fee of private coaching institutions.” The admission will be based on entrance test and one batch will have only 30 aspirants added the minister.
The state government will run the batches in collaboration with a NGO. Anuj Bisht, an aspirant who is preparing for Indian Administrative Services exams said, “If the initiative is translated into a reality, it will support many who lack resources to prepare and appear in these competitive exams. I hope this becomes a reality soon.”
