“Entry-in-Services” – UGC Sponsored Scheme

The well-being and development of the Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), OBC (Non-creamy-layer) and minorities are important indicators of the strength and success of a democratic society. Special provisions have been made to improve the status of these groups, socially and educationally, so that they can take their rightful place in the society.

In order to prepare students belonging to SC/ST/OBC (Non-creamy-layer) and minority communities to get gainful employment in central and other services, UGC Scheme of coaching classes for Entry-in-Services during the 12th plan was proved to be very much beneficial to the target sector.

The Entry-in-Services – UGC sponsored scheme under 12th plan period in Bidhan Chandra College, Rishra

It is the privilege to announce that Bidhan Chandra College, Rishra had organized and conducted classes for Entry-in-Services (UGC sponsored scheme under 12th plan period) for SC/ST/OBC (Non-creamy-layer) and minority community students belonging to our college, to help them to get gainful employment in various Government and Non-Government services.

Entry-in-Services Cell

Taking the scheme of UGC as an opportunity for the needy but spirited students, the Governing Body of the college had resolve to form a competent cell namely Entry-in-Services Cell to look after the entire project (under 12th plan period).


Convenor:                        Prof. Shawli Roy Basu (Associate Professor in Economics)

Joint Convenor:                Prof. Dr. Chinmoy Mishra (Assistant Professor in Sanskrit)

Joint Convenor:                Dr. Arup Bijali (Librarian- Day Section).

The cell performed its duty under regular and constructive development process under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Ramesh Kar, Vice-Principal of the college.


Implementation and functioning of the scheme      

  • A large number of special classes had been arranged by the cell for the students covering all the streams – BA/BSc/BCom (Hons & General) – Day & Evening section as well to prepare themselves for competitive examinations in various fields.
  • All the classes were taken by the expert professionals/teachers who had achieved remarkable success in the field of specialized training.
  • Professors of the college were also contributed in those special classes sharing their immense knowledge in the subject to build the basic knowledge of Science, Social Science, Mathematics, English language as well as general studies and current affairs etc.    
  • A large number of mock tests (based on sample question papers of various current competitive examinations) were also conducted on a regular basis.
  • A huge stock of books, leading journals, periodicals related to various competitive examinations were procured in the Entry-in-service books corner under college central library for the students’ upgradation. These books serve the current students also.
  • Study materials (Mathematics, General Intelligence, General Knowledge, English language etc.) were provided to all the students participated in the programme.


The entire programme sponsored under the UGC scheme was very much beneficial to the participants, especially to those who belong to the local area of Rishra and surroundings – majorly a first generation learner. As a matter of fact the majority of the students belong to the working class family from the unorganized sector with their limited financial capacity to avail such special training.    

With the end in view of bestowing strength and success to the ward of such families, our college would leave no stone unturned to achieve its target successfully by undertaking such programmes in future also.
