The scheme was introduced last year to provide financial assistance to students from Scheduled Castes preparing for competitive examinations, and the maximum financial  assistance provided to any student was Rs. 40,000. Now, the Delhi government announced a cabinet decision to expand the scheme to all students who have completed  Class 10th or Class 12th from Delhi, whether they are  from the SC, ST, OBC or from the general categories.

“It’s the age of cut-throat competition and children require coaching for getting admission in good engineering and medical colleges.”

Children born in poor families are also very intelligent, but in the absence of resources for coaching they are left behind, and only those with sufficient economic resources have access to coaching, till now.

This scheme was only for students of Scheduled Caste category and maximum financial assistance was Rs. 40,000. Today the Cabinet has decided to expand this scheme in scope and duration,” said Chief Minister Mr. Arvind Kejriwal.

Course Duration Fee
Civil Services Pre & Mains 12 Month 1 Lakh
Civil Services Optional 4 Month 40,000
Judicial Services 11 Month 1 Lakh
Engineering & Medical Entrance 11 Month 1 Lakh
UPSC Group A & B 6 Month 50,000
NDA, CDS Entrance, MBA, CLAT 6 Month 50,000
State Civil Services A & B 5 Month 50,000
SSC, Group B & C Post 4 Month 25,000
Civil Services Interview 1 Month 10,000

Under this scheme, assistance is provided to students preparing for civil service examinations; judicial service examinations; entrance examinations for courses like engineering, medicine, MBA and Law; and other public examinations for recruitment to bank and public sector undertakings.

Till last year, the maximum duration for which coaching was provided under his scheme was five months. Following  the cabinet decision, this duration has been expanded- in the case of civil services and judicial services examinations, the minimum duration has been set at 12months. The quantum of financial assistance has also been increased to Rs 1lakh for these two categories of examinations and for engineering, medical, National Defence Academy and Combined Defence Services entrance examinations.

Last year, 4961 students had availed coaching services under this scheme. With the expansion of it’s scope, the number of beneficiaries is likely to increase.

Asked which department will be responsible for implementing this scheme now that its scope and meaning has changed from welfare of scheduled caste students, Mr. Kejriwal said it would continue to be carried out by the SC/ST Welfare Department.
