The local administration in Chhattisgarh’s Balrampur district has started a coaching centre which provides free education to the poor, called Udaan. As per ANI, this institute also provides opportunities for girls from financially weaker families to get themselves enrolled in a number of competitive exams.

As per the report, two teachers have also been appointed by the administration. The initiative has got all praise from students as they can prepare for UPSC exams under top officers too. A number of IAS and IPS officers also visit this institute on regular basis in order to inspire students.  At least 70 girls have enrolled themselves in the Institute till now, ANI said.

That there is a huge hunger in hinterlands for education is clear from this incident that happened earlier this year, when about 90 students from Rewari district of Haryana ended their fast after the state government gave in to their demand of upgrading the government high school at Gothra Tappa Dahina village. The girls had gone on an indefinite strike, complaining they would face harassment and even molestation when they travel to nearby Kanwali village to continue their studies at the nearest senior secondary school.

At a press conference, state Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma had said that a notification has been issued to  upgrading the high school and a principal was deputed to start the admission process.

The minister had also added that the state government has also decided to relax the norm for the upgrading process after consultation with Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and the additional chief secretary of the school education department P K Das, Indian Express added.
