Hence ABM started a private batch taking minimal fees from the students to give them reliable coaching . Our first batch had 10 students out of which 7 got qualified in IBPS Exam.So far 45 students got selected in both government & private sector in various departments like:
Public : Police Department, Bombay Municipal Corporation, Maharashtra State Transport Corporation, Mumbai High Court, Railway Station Master, Irrigation Department Government Of Maharashtra, Charity Commissioner Office Thane, Deputy Manager Tribal Commisioner Office Nashik, Assistant Auditor Dapoli College, Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company, Union Bank Of India, Police Constable.
