The Uttarakhand government has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with private school management in the state to support students from disadvantaged backgrounds who face resource constraints.
Under the two-year initiative costing approximately ₹680 crore, the designated schools will establish both day and residential schools in various towns, including Dehradun, Rishikesh, Haridwar, and others.
While the participating schools already operate in the state, they primarily cater to urban students.
Director General of School Education Banshidhar Tiwari announced the decision, aiming to provide educational access to weaker sections by expanding the reach of these institutions.
