Children studying in government schools and government aided schools are currently getting free uniforms. They will be provided with free shoes from the next academic year. This scheme is introduced following demands from parent-teacher associations across the State.
The children used to get bitten by mosquitoes during the rainy season, once they are provided with shoes and socks, they will get some relief. The shoes will be procured through a proper tender. Each student right from Class 1 would be provided with two pairs of socks either white or black and a pair of black shoes. More than 60 lakh children will be benefitted by this scheme. It will be distributed to the students along with uniforms and text books during the next academic year
