Pune: According to a recent GR, Shriram IAS Organisation, Delhi has been selected by the government of Maharashtra to provide special training to scholarship holding UPSC candidates who are reappearing for the examination for 2017-18.

To avail the benefits of the scheme, the candidates must be the resident of the state of Maharashtra. The annual income of the family of the candidate must be under Rs 10 lakh. The candidate who has passed the UPSC mains at least once in the past three years, but disqualified in the interview, is eligible to apply for the scholarship. 

Criteria for scholarship 
The scholarship is divided into three parts. 
Part 1: It will be given to the selected candidates for acquiring training at the given UPSC training institute in Delhi, and will remain valid only if the candidate clears UPSC prelims in that attempt. 
Part 2: It will be given to the candidates who have passed prelims for the first time that year. 
Part 3: It will be given to those who have cleared the mains, to undergo training for the interview.
