Good news for the students coming from the weak economic background who are often forced to abandon the idea of becoming a civil servant due to the high costs of attending coaching classes in the big cities of the country.
In order to assist the “deserving and meritorious students” to fulfil their dreams, Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh has launched the CM scholarship scheme for civil services coaching worth over Rs 1 crore.
The Manipur government has partnered with the Delhi-based Alternative Learning System -IAS Institute (ALS-IAS) for the scheme, Singh informed.
Under the scholarship scheme, at least 150 civil services aspirants will be provided 100 per cent scholarship for which an amount of Rs 1.06 crore has been earmarked by the Manipur government, as reported by India Today.
Singh also informed that the government will provide financial assistance to 300 aspirants who will be selected by the ALS-IAS, State Higher Education Department and the district administration based on their performances.
A total of 450 selected aspirants will receive coaching at authorised centres of ALS-IAS institutes located at seven district headquarters in Manipur, the Chief Minister further shared.
