The government of India has now planned to start an initiative in which free study material to the IIT-JEE aspirants. This study material will, in turn, help the students as this will be provided totally free of cost and the students will get the material without paying high fees of the mushrooming various coaching institutes that claim for guaranteed result.
These premier institutions offer a fantastic quality of education which is the reason why there is a cut throat competition for admissions in these. The study material will be available to the students by various means of communication such as a dedicated website, YouTube and three free-to-air TV channels launched by Doordarshan. These channels are expected to be launched on India's Independence day, August 15. Free to help, helpline number will also be launched in order to help the students with their queries and doubts. This helpline will work from 8am to 8pm.
This step was taken by the government because of the recent increase in a number of cases of suicides of students who fail to clear these competitions. Due to increased competition, various coaching institutes have mushroomed which charge a high fee for providing study material which in turn generates lesser results.
"Any student can access content anytime in the day. The government intends to give equal opportunity to all students to be able to crack IITs without "” or with minimum reliance on "” the coaching institutes," said a senior government official. "Right now, it is difficult to even for the brightest student to get through IIT without coaching. This initiative will certainly reduce that need," a senior professor at one of the older IITs said to a news daily about this initiative.
"This should reduce stress among students who are aspiring for engineering institutes," said a professor, who is part of this programme. The programme has a panel of 10 teachers working on the material. It also said that the top 100 JEE rankers will share tips and tricks as to solve the questions in less time during the examination. The committee of this initiative will pick certain teachers from IITs, Kendriya Vidyalayas, retirees and professors, faculty at private coaching centers for collaborating in this and making it a success by helping aspirants in the examination preparation.
