In order to enable students belonging to SC/ST/OBC (non-creamy layer)/ Minority communities, who need remedial coaching to come up to the Level necessary for pursuing higher studies efficiently and to reduce their failure and drop-out rate, the UGC will provide financial assistance for conducting special classes outside the regular timetable during the Eleventh Plan. Students belonging to Other Backward Classes and General candidates may also be allowed the benefit of such coaching classes. A nominal fee (not exceeding the monthly tuition fee) may be charged from the general candidates. However, physically challenged students and students who are General candidates coming from families with income below the poverty line (as guided by the State/ UT/ Central Government) will be exempted from paying the fee.
Remedial Coaching is to be organized at Undergraduate / Postgraduate level with a view to :-
i. improving academic skills and linguistic proficiency of the students in various sub
ii. raising their level of comprehension of basic subjects to provide a stronger foundation for further academic work.
iii. strengthening their knowledge, skills and attitudes in such subjects, where quanti tative and qualitative techniques and laboratory activities are involved so that proper guidance and training provided under the programme may enable the students to come up to the level necessary for pursuing higher studies efficiently.
