UPSC Civil Services Examination is renowned as one of the toughest competitive examinations in the country. Many coaching institutes charge hefty fees for better preparation. In a welcome move, the Tamil Nadu government has decided to provide financial relief to young aspirants preparing for the UPSC exam.

Tamil Nadu Youth Welfare and Sports Development Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin has made this announcement. This decision is aimed at supporting the increasing number of youth preparing for UPSC in the state. One thousand youth will get a stipend. This decision of the state government is being appreciated a lot.

Special scheme for UPSC preparation

Udhayanidhi Stalin has revealed that the youth preparing for UPSC will be included in the 'Naan Muthalvan Scheme'. Under this scheme, each student will receive a stipend of Rs 7,500 for a period of ten months to prepare for the UPSC exam.

He highlighted the decline in the number of students in the state appearing for the UPSC exam. At one time, the percentage of youth from Tamil Nadu under the jurisdiction of the central government was 10%, but after 2016 it fell to 5%. Through this scheme, preparation for the UPSC Civil Services Examination has become more accessible and convenient.

1.5 lakh youth get jobs

Stalin emphasized that through the 'Naan Muthalavan Scheme' youth can secure places in the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), Indian Banking Service, and Railways jobs. This scheme has benefited 13 lakh students and provided employment opportunities to 150,000 students. The government has once again taken this decision to help students get an education.
