Two Delhi University colleges, Swami Schraddhanand and Hansraj, have offered IAS training with university officials, saying it is “purely government-funded educational institutions” and cannot do so.
Dean of University Colleges Balaram Pani said the matter would be investigated.
While Hansraj College has been providing IAS training in collaboration with the private Beacon Institute since last year, Shraddhanand College recently issued a notice in this regard, said Alok Pandi, a member of the DU Academic Council.
According to a website on Hansraj College, the amount of the fee varies depending on the 12 percent of the class. The minimum fee for a three-year curriculum is Rs 75,000 and the maximum is Rs 1,550.
“The exchange rate payment regime is a demand tranche, NEFT or a check. These tools should be used in favor of “Director, Hansraj College”, – said in a statement. Admission to IAS classes at Hansraj College is open to all students of the University of Delhi, the report said.
College director Schraddhand Provin Garg said they plan to start coaching in the coming months, and the decision to start such a program was made “independently”. The fee for the three years is reported to be Rs 1,550,000. College students will be awarded 25 percent scholarships.
“Colleges are forbidden to do that. They are an educational institution. They cannot start teaching students. I will call an investigation. These are purely academic institutes for scientific purposes. They can’t just give tuition to those who pay and leave other students, ”Pani said.
