Distributing Tabs to 5 lakh students
Meanwhile, Khattar claimed in a statement that his government had distributed tablets to 5 lakh students in grades 10, 11, and 12.
“Haryana is the first state in the country to distribute tablets to five lakh students of government schools. The state government is working to implement more educational reforms. In this budget, Rs 20,000 crore has been set aside for education. We don’t want to leave our students behind in any area as the current era is of technology,” Khattar remarked.
He continued by saying that while Haryana has agreed to execute the National Education Policy (NEP) by 2025, the national government has set a goal of having it in effect by 2030.
