Only Rajasthan University students granted free coaching for competitive exams

Rajasthan University PG Admissions 2023 start

On Friday, June 30, 2023, representatives from ABVP, along with enrolled students, staged a protest outside the Vice-Chancellor's Secretariat. The objective of the protest was to demand free coaching for major government exams such as IAS and RAS, address the insufficient facilities in the classes, and the failure to conduct promised online classes. In response to the protest, Rajasthan University (RU) officials announced that only students currently studying at Rajasthan University would be eligible for free coaching for exams like IAS and RAS.

Contrary to the protest claims, Ram Singh Chauhan, the Director of APTC, clarified that classes had indeed commenced in June. These classes were organized by NSUI in partnership with an NGO, and the University had provided the necessary premises, namely the APTC, for conducting the classes. The Director of APTC further communicated with the NGO, stating that free coaching classes would exclusively be offered to students from Rajasthan University (RU) and its constituent colleges. To avail the coaching, students would be required to present their identity cards as proof of enrollment.

“One of the major grievances voiced being conducted of promised online classes. Although the coaching centre had limited space for only 300 students, 50,000 registration were accepted by the NGO. The classes were operational for a period of one month before the decision to restrict access.”

On June 27, the Director of APTC addressed a letter to the Vice-Chancellor, outlining that the NGO had initially received verbal permission to conduct classes in two halls on the first floor of the center. However, it came to the Director's attention that the NGO had exceeded the agreed capacity by admitting additional students and utilizing rooms on the ground floor as well.

“The NGO director is putting unnecessary pressure on us by getting students leaders to call and demand for furniture, water facilities, wi-fi facilities whereas on MoU has been signed between the university and this NGO. They do not want to spend any money of RU and not for students from across.” - states the letter. 

During the protest on Friday, representatives of ABVP, who were demonstrating outside the VC secretariat, made allegations that students were compelled to pay tuition fees for the coaching classes but were subsequently expelled from the classes against their will.

“Initially it was said that students will be given free coaching classes and NSUI took credit for starting this initiative, then why are students being asked to pay for the coaching. Further, why was a private NGO allowed to conduct classes in the university and whereis the money going that is being taken from students; this must be investigated. Due to this, several outsiders are also entering the campus.” - said Hushyar Meena, national general secretary for ABVP. 

“The university has collaborated with NGO for starting coaching classes at ATPC to give coaching to students of RU. for students, online classes were to be conducted. It has come to our attention that there has been an influx of external individuals utilizing the coaching centre.”
