Lucknow: The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh is planning free education from “KG to PG” from next year.
Deputy chief minister Dinesh Sharma, who is also the secondary and higher education minister, has set up a committee to work out the modalities.
“We want that a child who takes admission in KG (kindergarten) should get education up to the PG (post-graduate) level without any charges. A large number of students drop out because of monetary considerations,” the deputy CM said.
Dr Sharma said that this would be applicable for all government schools and colleges. “This will also attract more students to government schools and will automatically lead to an improvement in the standards of the schools”, he said.
Then deputy chief minister is also taking steps to regularise the academic session in all government schools, colleges and universities.
