Despite the commencement of the academic session of the Basic Education Council schools, 56 districts have not yet ordered books. On this, the government has given instructions to take action and fix the responsibility of the officers in 15 days.
In fact, the deadline for the supply of books for publishers is set for early September. Officials argue that with the arrival of books, supplies will start soon in some districts. Then as the books arrive, the supply will continue, but in the districts itself there is a delay in ordering. In such a situation, children will get these books more late. Apart from this, those who were lax in reviewing various works related to enrollment of children in schools, adoption of schools, MIS coordinator selection, Aadhar kit operation, pending cases in court etc. were warned.
So far only 19 districts have placed orders
After the commencement of the session from June 16, so far only 19 districts have placed orders for the publishers. These include Bulandshahr, Ghaziabad, Aligarh, Bareilly, Prayagraj, Fatehpur, Pratapgarh, Kaushambi, Bhadohi, Sonbhadra, Basti, Siddharthnagar, Ballia, Jhansi, Amethi, Barabanki, Ambedkar Nagar, Shravasti.
