About our ‘Education Langar’ initiative:
Education Langar is a one of its kind initiative where experts provide explanations, crisp content – essentially free of cost.
Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown it induced was extremely harsh on the general public. The economic hardships faced by the nation created a situation where the upper class slipped into the middle class & the middle class slipped into the lower middle class.
But in this hour of crisis, various public-spirited individuals and organizations came forward to render valuable and much needed help – some through free food and rationing, others through free shelter and support groups.
Education sector was one of the most affected sectors due to the lockdown. The impact was two-fold – (a) With educational institutions closed, the very availability of quality education became scarce and (b) Due to the economic impact, the affordability of the educational courses for the common aspirants was also reduced.
Here the Team CBL came up with a unique initiative – “Education Langar” for Punjab PCS aspirants. In the true tradition of ‘Guru ka Langar’, education was served to all the aspirants of Punjab PCS Exam by Team CBL completely free of cost. The presentation of concepts, coverage of the fundamentals and passionate delivery of topics along with the meticulous organisation of the sessions has been a ray of hope for aspirants. The remarkable success of our candidates in the final merit list is the testimony to the quality of education imparted under this programme.
CBL began its first virtual knowledge session on 5th June 2020, which consisted of Comprehensive PCS Prelims preparation. Post the successful PCS Prelims result on 12th March 2021, the CBL team started the PCS Mains batch on 15th March 2021, free of charge for all the aspirants with full enthusiasm and zeal despite a time crunch between the Prelims result and the Mains exam.
Buoyed by the success of the PCS Mains result, the CBL team began with the interview preparation program comprising on-camera mock interviews to train the shortlisted candidates.
This has finally reaped great dividends for the students who were suffering under the pandemic and the team was able to achieve 5 out of the top 10 ranks including Rank 1- Upinderjeet Kaur Brar, Rank 3- Sachin Pathak, Rank 4- Mehak Mittal, Rank 6- Gurleen, Rank-7 Sujawal Jagga, and Rank 10- Karamjot Singh besides others. Furthermore, in the ESM Category, APS Somal and Irwan Kaur secured Rank 2 & Rank 3 respectively. In the sports category, Chandandeep Singh secured the position. In the Backward Classes category, Monica Saini and Pirtpal Singh secured positions.
So far, more than 40,000 aspiring candidates have benefited from this free course. The Education Langar program has received appreciation from various bureaucrats and eminent personalities such as Kanwar Pal Gujjar, Minister of Education for Haryana.
Chetan Sharma, Managing Director, says, “Team CBL has continued its free initiative for Haryana Public Service Commission (HCS) aspirants given the disruption caused by the COVID pandemic’s second wave. The team hopes to reach as many students as possible to guide them for their exam scheduled on 22nd August. Furthermore, an MOU was also signed between the Govt. of Haryana and Team CBL. The team aims to constantly improve its syllabus and find more innovative and engaging ways to deliver knowledge and help as many students as possible to clear HCS Prelims.”
Additionally, Team CBL also launched a unique course for UPSC aspirants called MISSION 2021, designed after years of experience and experimentation by TeamCBL’s expert faculty. The course is a sturdy blend of expert guidance and mentorship, meticulously planned study plans, and thousands of MCQs curated to provide the best learning experience.
