HAILAKANDI, June 16 - The Hailakandi district administration will launch an ambitious programme titled Udyom, which is a classroom-cum-study centre for helping students in preparing for entrance and competitive examinations and also make them employable in openings in government and allied institutions.
A brainchild of Deputy Commissioner Keerthi Jalli, the initiative is aimed at mitigating the circumstances of students who cannot afford expensive coaching.
�Through Udyom, we would like to introduce a serious study culture and encourage poor students who cannot afford expensive coaching,� said Assistant Commissioner Parikshit Phukan, who is closely connected with the initiative.
Udyom will be a platform for aspirants to interact with administrators, successful entrepreneurs, doctors and academicians. Resource persons and guest faculties will be roped in to mentor and aid the students. A non-residential coaching programme, classrooms equipped with audio-visual facilities and Wifi, set in a perfect academic ambience, will be provided entirely free.
As it is not a scholarship programme, students have to make their own travel arrangements.
