A Pioneer in Coaching for Competitive Exams
Dharwad, regarded as cultural capital of Karnataka, is also well known for educational institutions. 21 years ago, the world was not as fast as today. Karnataka, particularly North-Karnataka, had no conducive atmosphere for competitive examinations as there was no awareness. Considering the hurdle, Mr. Laxman S Uppar, an Engineer by qualification, took the initiative of providing coaching for various competitive examinations. As a result, The Classic KAS & IAS Study Circle was started on February 1997 at Jayanagar in Dharwad.
