Lucknow, October 14

The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh is all set to open Atal Residential Schools where children of labourers will be given free and quality education.

This will provide better, equal and accessible education to the underprivileged and deprived sections.

On Thursday, a state government spokesman said that the Atal Residential Schools are being built at each of the 18 divisional headquarters - Aligarh, Ayodhya, Azamgarh, Basti, Bareilly, Chitrakoot, Devipatan, Jhansi, Kanpur, Lucknow, Meerut, Mirzapur, Prayagraj, Gorakhpur, Moradabad, Agra, Saharanpur and Varanasi.

The Public Works Department has been roped in as the executive body and an amount of Rs 180 crore was allocated to them in March 2020 for the construction of the schools.

In the current financial year, the state government has alloted a budget of Rs 270 crore for the construction of these schools in a time-bound manner. IANS
