I think that this is a very good government scheme to encourage and motivate the candidates belonging to ST category in the state of Maharashtra who have qualified in the UPSC mains exam. As we all know that qualifying in the prelim and mains of UPSC exam is very difficult and very few people reach up to that stage. So, the chances of grabbing this aid is more for such candidates who have reached up to that milestone. The grant of Rs 12000 per month for a maximum period of three months plus a one time grant of Rs 14000 is definitely a great help for the candidates at that juncture of career making.
