New Delhi: The Modi government will soon be providing free coaching for IIT-JEE and NEET aspirants from 2019.
According to reports, the government will be converting its test practice centres into teaching centres. The National Testing Agency (NTA) will be converting 2,697 test practice centres into teaching institutions from next year.
The step taken by the government might come as a huge shock or blow to private institutions who charge a heft fee from students.
“The plan is to take these centres beyond just practice tests and turn them into teaching centres. They will not charge any fees and so will be especially helpful for talented students from sections where aspirations are high but private coaching is impossible due to financial constraints. Candidates from rural and semi-urban centres will also benefit", an HRD official said. (INDIAONLINE.IN)
