The Rajasthan government decides to make available an online registration facility for students who are preparing for competitive examinations. Amid coronavirus pandemic situation, the government has taken this decision to make necessary arrangements for these students.
The proposal for this project has been approved by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot which will be completed at an estimated cost of Rs 68 lakh. The Department of Information Technology and Communication said that according to the proposal a student database will be prepared to create a web portal and a mobile app with information like students' addresses, their families, hostels and PGs, coaching centers in Kota. Through the portal, students' issues regarding coaching, housing, and meals will be resolved. However, RajComp Info Services Limited will prepare the student register which will have a database of around two lakh students in Kota.
Reportedly, there are around 50 small and 10 big coaching institutes in Kota where around two lakh students prepare for competitive examinations of engineering, medical and other fields. The city also facilitates 25,000 paying guests, 3,000 hostels, and 1,800 kitchen messes. The annual turnover of the coaching industry in Kota is more than Rs 3,000 crore, the statement added.
