The CM said that the plan of starting this scheme was thought of when he saw the difficulties faced by the students who were stuck in Kota, Rajasthan. "During the coronavirus related lockdown, I saw the agony of the students trapped in Kota. UP government had provided buses for stranded youth in Rajasthan. We thought that if we provide the facility of coaching in our state then it will get better results. I believe, good faculty can be provided anywhere for better education," CM Yogi said.
The teaching faculty will include experts in their fields including the IAS, IPS, IFS, PCS, and medical and IIT experts will teach the students. "There is a provision of free guidance and teaching by officers of IAS, IPS, Indian Forest Service, PCS cadre," the official website reads.
"UP Abhyudaya Yojana has been preferred by more than 50 lakh youth so far. A total of five lakh students are joining the online test. 50 thousand students have been selected in the first phase whose classes will begin on February 16," the CM said.
In the first phase, Abhyudaya Yojana will be started in 18 Commissionerate Headquarters. There will be weekly, monthly tests based on which screening will be done. "It is our endeavor that when the scheme starts, it will go on continuously," he added.
UP CM Yogi Adityanath said that the existing infrastructure will be utilized for the best possible results. Around 50-100 students can be allowed to attend the classes physically. "However, if we continue the classes in online virtual mode, we expect to benefit over one crore youth," he added.
