The FACC will implement a scheme
for Civil Services Examination Coaching titled “HOQUE
20”. The scheme is conceptualised by Mr.
Mahbubul Hoque, Chairman, ERD Foundation, and Chancellor of
the University of Science and Technology, Meghalaya.
Under the scheme 20 brilliant undergraduate students in their
first year, mainly from disadvantaged rural families from
North East will be nurtured, motivated, inspired and guided by
Mr.Hoque all through their undergraduate studies so that at
the end of their undergraduate course, they can compete
successfully in All India Civil Services Examination and
realise their dreams. Mr. Mahbubul Hoque, himself coming from
a remote village in Karimganj district in southern part of
Assam, against all adversity, went to Aligarh Muslim
University, where he took his first class MCA degree. Then he
came back to Assam in 2002 to set up his first educational
venture-the Central IT College, Dispur with only four
students. He went on to break all barriers to set up eight
educational Institutions including an engineering college and
a technology university in course of ten years, thus
revolutionising the professional educational scenario in the
North East. Now Mr. Hoque wants to help the brilliant but
disadvantaged students from the region to break the vicious
circle of adversity and realise their dreams. Under the able
guidance of Mr. Hoque, already a large no. of students
belonging to disadvantaged families is undergoing different
courses at different Institutions of ERDF Group free of cost.
Now he wants that brilliant students from disadvantaged
families also taste the success in their career and break the
barrier. Hence this scheme- “HOQUE
20”. Mr. Hoque has the vision of convulsing the North
Eastern Region of India with successful IAS aspirants.
The vast potentials of North
East Region of India remains unexplored till date leading to
underdevelopment of the region mainly because of absence of
talents from this region in the decision making process at the
various levels of Central and State Governments of North East.
With the success of “HOQUE
Region will overcome this deficiency and necessary
developmental activities will take place with right spirit.
