Khalsa College’s IAS, PCS, NET, PO, Coaching Centre doing yeoman’s service for competitive examination aspirants, boon for border area students

Amritsar, February 2, 2012 : Set up only a few months back, University Grants Commission (UGC)-sponsored Coaching Centre for competitive examinations at the local Khalsa College, is doing a yeoman’s service in preparing border area students for IAS, PCS, Probationary Officers (POs) and UGC’s National Eligibility Test (NET) tests. The Centre is boon for the otherwise neglected region as more than 100 students have already received specialized-training and instructions from experts under the program.
The poor students from backward classes, scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and minorities are provided the guidance free of cost.  The aim of the Centre, said Principal of College, Dr. Daljit Singh, is to prepare the students coming from the border belt, who form major chunk of the college students, for various competitive tests. He said the students are imparted instructions by special teaching. The poor students are immensely benefited from `new initiative’ taken by them.
“The special coaching classes are held on the campus to provide valuable guidance”, said he as he motivated students to make maximum use of opportunity by joining these classes, though he said already the response has been overwhelming. “There are many commercial centres opening up in private sector but deserving students from poor backgrounds cannot afford their hefty fees. So with the help from UGC, we opened up this centre in October, last year’’, said Dr.Daljit.
It is pertinent to mention that Khalsa College Public School, adjacent to College, which is also being run by Khalsa College Charitable Society (KCCS), is also running a state government- sponsored Coaching Centre of its own on the lines of `Super-50’. The Centre is catching up youngsters, school passed candidates, to provide them valuable training and guidance for various examinations, especially IAS and PCS. The College’s Coaching Centre’s main focus is UGC-NET, so that interested candidates clear the exams to become eligible for lectureship and research to meet rising demand of trained college and university teachers.
“If more students succeed in these exams, our College’s name would also gain further glory. Thus we are opening up our well-stocked libraries including its magazine and newspapers sections, multi-media projectors for latest information in their respective subjects”, said Dr. Daljit Singh as he thanked the UGC for choosing the college for the initiative. Dr. Jatinder Singh Gandhi from Chemistry Department and Dr. Sawant Singh Monto from English Department are the coordinators who had been entrusted with the responsibilities to make the Centre a major success.
He said resource persons from college faculty and outside, visiting professors’ tips would help the students to understand the topics better and then the mock tests are conducted to check the progress of the training of the candidates.
