The objective of the scheme is to facilitate coaching and study camps for the weak students to improve their performance. Earlier this scheme was covering students of SC/ST/educationally backward minority & weaker section students only.

Constant support is needed to these students even beyond school hours. To overcome this problem, it is proposed that coaching camps of a month’s duration are organized in summer vacations in identified government schools. The number of schools where coaching camps would be organized shall not exceed 5 in a zone.
