Agartala, September 11, 2023 – In a heartwarming gesture aimed at nurturing young talents in Tripura, Chief Minister Prof Dr. Manik Saha has extended financial support to three promising individuals who successfully cleared the Prelims of the UPSC examinations. This generous initiative, known as the “Lakshya” – Chief Minister Special Scheme for UPSC exams, has been making a significant impact since its launch during the 2019-20 fiscal year.
Under the “Lakshya” scheme, deserving youths from Tripura with a family income of less than Rs 10 lakh per annum are eligible for financial assistance. To date, four outstanding individuals have benefitted from this initiative, receiving a financial boost of Rs 5 lakh each from 2019-20 to the 2022-23 financial years. Importantly, the assistance doesn’t end with the preliminary exams; upon successfully clearing the main examinations, the government provides an additional disbursement of Rs 20,000 to further support their journey.
One remarkable success story from the scheme is that of Satabdee Majumder, who became the first beneficiary to transform her dreams into reality. She is now an accomplished IAS officer, having successfully navigated the rigorous selection process and secured her posting.
Three aspirants from Tripura have cleared the Civil Service preliminary examination conducted by the UPSC this year.
