Punjab to Establish Eight Free UPSC Coaching Centers to Boost State Representation in Central Services
Chandigarh, July 22 – In a significant move aimed at bolstering the representation of Punjab in prestigious central services such as IAS, IPS, IRS, and others, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann announced on Saturday that the state government will establish eight state-of-the-art training centers to provide coaching for exams conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
During a high-level meeting, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann expressed concern over the declining ratio of Punjab’s youth in central services, particularly in UPSC exams. Despite possessing immense talent, the youth of the state often face challenges in cracking these exams due to a preference for going abroad and a lack of access to quality coaching within Punjab. To address this issue, the state government has undertaken the initiative to open these eight coaching centers across Punjab.
The primary objective of these centers will be to offer high-quality coaching to aspiring youth, completely free of cost, to help them clear the UPSC exams and secure esteemed positions in both the state and union government. Punjab boasts a rich legacy of producing exceptional bureaucrats who have made significant contributions to the socio-economic development of the nation through their service in various capacities. Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann emphasized the importance of upholding this tradition, and he believes that these coaching centers will play a pivotal role in achieving this goal.
The Chief Minister reiterated that the main purpose of establishing these centers is to ensure that Punjabi youth occupy prominent offices and serve the country with distinction. To facilitate accessibility, the training will be provided free of cost to all interested students from diverse sections of society. Furthermore, the government plans to fine-tune the entry modalities into the coaching centers and ensure the recruitment of highly qualified and dedicated staff.
In addition to regular training at these centers, the state government is also considering the introduction of online training programs for UPSC aspirants in Punjab. Additionally, financial assistance will be extended to the candidates enrolled in these coaching centers. Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann expressed confidence that Punjab is on its way to producing leading bureaucrats for the nation.
This landmark initiative by the Punjab government reflects their commitment to nurturing and empowering the talented youth of the state, creating a path for them to serve the country at the highest levels of administration. With these eight ultra-modern coaching centers, Punjab seeks to revitalize its representation in central services and contribute to the nation’s progress and development.
