Adoni: A commemorative ceremony to celebrate three years of Jagananna Vidya Kanuka, a scheme launched by the Andhra Pradesh government to provide free school kits, was held at Adoni in Andhra Pradesh on 5 July.

The school kit consists of three pairs of uniforms, a pair of shoes, two pairs of socks, a belt, a school bag, textbooks, notebooks, and workbooks. They are given to students of classes I to X studying in government and aided schools.

Under the scheme, 47,40,421 students have received the school kits. This year the state spent around Rs. 931.02 crores and in the last three years, it has spent a total of Rs. 2,368.33 crores.

"We are the only government to focus on the future generation," Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy said at the ceremony. He added that in the last three years, the state government has spent Rs. 52,676.98 crores on education schemes like Amma Vodi and Swecha. As a result, the number of students studying in government schools (from classes I to X) has seen a remarkable increase from 37.21 lakh students to 44.30 lakh students.

The CM further said the government has signed an MoU with BYJUs to provide study material for all students of classes IV to X studying in government schools. Also, 4.7 lakh students of class VIII will receive tablets by September 2022, Jagan said and added that steps are being taken to install Smart TVs and digital display boards in each classroom to facilitate digital teaching and learning.

Lending support and appreciating the government-led initiatives in the education sector, Haji Altaf Hussain from the Minority welfare department said, "Education policy is not targeted towards one section of society but for the benefit of students across the state. The Chief Minister has ensured that it is his responsibility to educate people, irrespective of caste, creed, and religion. I urge my Minority community to fully utilise the resources, facilities, and privileges that are being provided by the education policies because this is the future."
