There are certain conditions which have to be fulfilled to participate in the coaching. Under this, only those students who have passed the graduation examination or are appearing in the graduation final year examination can join the coaching. Apart from this, only those students can do coaching, whose annual family income is less than 2.5 lakh rupees.
