Diamond City May Get UPSC Readiness Center | Surat News


Surat: Every year, thousands of aspiring civil servants from southern Gujarat travel to Ahmedabad or Mumbai to sit for the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exams. Now, the Surat district administration is trying to allocate a UPSC foreplay center to the diamond city.
According to officials from the Surat district administration, a UPSC team is expected to visit the city soon. The team will look at the available infrastructure and if the facilities match the requirements, there is a good chance that a center will be assigned to the city.
Currently, Ahmedabad and Rajkot have preliminary centers. For the main examination, Ahmedabad is the only center in the state. Currently, a large number of students have to travel to Ahmedabad, Rajkot and Mumbai for the exams.
“The process to provide a center for the UPSC screening has been initiated. Since we have the infrastructure, we hope Surat will have a center, ”said Aayush Oak, district collector, Surat.
“For a UPSC exam center, a city should have a facility where more than 4,000 students can take the exam. We have enough such facilities in Surat, ”Oak added.
Teachers and students preparing for competitions also fought for a UPSC center in Surat. “If Surat gets a center, it will be beneficial for many students. This will give students an economic and psychological benefit, ”said Bipin Trivedi, tutor at the Sambhav Coaching Center run by Dr Ambedkar Vanvasi Kalyan Trust. “Along with UPSC, we should also have a GPSC power center in the city,” added Trivedi.
For students in southern Gujarat and the neighboring districts of Maharashtra, a center in the city will have multiple advantages. “Currently, if we go to Ahmedabad or Rajkot, we have to get there a day in advance. We also have to spend on accommodation and food, ”said Prakash Patel, a candidate for public service.
“A center in Surat will be of benefit to students in the Dang, Tapi and Valsad area,” Patel added. Each year, more than 5,000 students sit for the region’s civil service exam.
