Delhi government has roped in a private agency for starting free-of-cost support to train students studying in government school for entrance exams. The students will be giving free training for NEET and JEE entrance exams.

As per the agreement between the Delhi government and Career Launcher, a competitive exam-prep organisation, special crash courses have been launched to train aspirants, currently studying under science stream in class 12th in Delhi Government schools, for the competitive examinations.

The company also organised a special training session for the Delhi Government school teachers to help facilitate the students' access and learning.

Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, took to Twitter and posted about the initiative while acknowledging the special guidance provided to Delhi Government school students by the company.

"Since 2015, the number of students getting selected in IIT-JEE has risen from 40-50 to over 300 selections today. This has been the result of the constant hard work of the teachers and students of Delhi government schools. We thank Career Launcher and welcome them in building upon this success," said Sisodia.

The classes which commenced on January 21, is held after-school hours, from 7 pm to 10 pm, where students will be trained for 130 hours in all the four key subjects- Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics.

In another development on Monday, Arvind Kejriwal laid the foundation stone for construction of 11,000 new classrooms in over 200 government schools in Delhi.

"Building infrastructure isn't rocket science, but the way how confidence has been instilled in the teachers of Delhi government schools, through exposures at the most reputed institutes of the world like Cambridge, Oxford, and Harvard," Kejriwal told to reporters here.

"It's unbelievable that 300-350 students of Delhi government schools got through IIT-JEE last year. I am from IIT, I know the hard work it takes," he said.
