School syllabus to have a lesson on civil services

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said the government will consider including information about civil services in the school curriculum.

Inaugurating Dr Rajkumar Civil Services Academy here on Sunday, the chief minister noted that the number of civil service officers from Karnataka was lower than those from states like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala.

“I would have pursued civil services if I was well informed about it during my school days. Luckily, I got professors like Nanjundaswamy during my law studies. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have entered politics,” he said.

Noting that talent was not restricted to people from a certain class, he said good guidance and  fair share of opportunities will open up paths for success to individuals from all communities.

Raghavendra Rajkumar said the motto of the institution is to help students in need. “We will try to go beyond civil services and include other competitive exams in the coming days,” he said.
