Sends proposal to centre

Lucknow: Just two days after the Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced the setting up of 750 Eklavya Model Residential Schools, the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has sent a proposal to the Centre to build Eklavya Model Residential Schools in Lucknow, Sonbhadra, Bijnor and Shravasti districts in the state.

Presently, Eklavya schools are running in Bahraich and Lakhimpur in the state as well as one is under construction in Lalitpur.

The state government has sent the proposal in a bid to enhance better education facilities to children from tribal and remote regions. The state government has already allocated a sum of Rs 48 crore to build an Eklavya School in the Sonbhadra district.

In addition to this, it has also sent a proposal to establish three more Eklavya schools in the state with an estimated cost of about 38 crores to provide high-quality education to the students of tribal origin.

In order to provide quality education in deprived regions, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has announced to build 750 Eklavya Model Residential Schools while presenting the union budget on Monday. Presently, there are 462 Eklavya Schools across the country.

The idea of Eklavya Schools was first introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his address to Gujarat’s Ekal Vidyalaya Sangathan.
