Khalsa College’s Coaching Center for UGC, IAS, PCS exams kick starts, to benefit thousands of border area students

Amritsar – To provide the much-needed guidance to border area students, preparing for various competitive examinations including University Grants Commission (UGC)’s National Eligibility Test (NET) and Civil Services, local Khalsa College has started UGC-sponsored coaching centre at its campus. The Centre, meant to provide coaching to IAS, NET and PCS aspirants, has already started working with Dr. Gurupdesh Singh from Department of English, Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU) delivering inaugural lecture on the need to inculcate the ‘sense of competition’ amongst students, last week.
Principal of the College, Dr. Daljit Singh said that the Centre has been set up on the lines of `Super-50’, with the sole aim to prepare the students for various competitive examinations. He said the students would be imparted instructions through coaching by specialized teaching staff, free of cost. He said the border area students who form recognizable chunk of the students of the College would be immensely benefited from the `new initiative’ they have taken.
“The special coaching classes would be held on the campus to provide valuable guidance to backward classes, scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and minorities’’, said he. He motivated the students to make maximum use of the opportunity by joining these classes though he said above 60 students have already enrolled themselves for the Centre, which is an encouraging trend.
He added that the students usually fear from even name of the NET or Civil Services. Our motive is to prepare them well to appear in these exams so that they succeed in the tests to join the prestigious services in the teaching and civil services. “If more students succeed in the exams our college’s name would also gain further glory’’, said Dr. Daljit Singh as he thanked the UGC for choosing the college for the initiative and releasing special grant for the Centre.
Dr. Daljit said that Jatinder Singh Gandhi from Chemistry Department and Sawant Singh Monto from English Department had been entrusted with the responsibilities to make the Centre a major success. He said special lectures would be held by experts whom they would be inviting to take the classes. He said that the facility would be a boon for the poor students of the border areas, who study in the College and would get specialized tips for the exams. He also asked various publishers to exhibit their books relating the NET, IAS, PCS exams in the main library of the colleges for the students to consult the same during their preparations for the competitive tests.
