Addressing the media, CM Biren extended his gratitude to Infosys Ltd for the new venture that has to be taken up under the Corporate Social Responsibility Scheme of the company.

CM Biren, while explaining about the Infosys Springboard, said that MoU is for enhancement of teaching-learning activities and teaching effectiveness through technology. The scheme has both student and teacher-oriented components and is fully aligned with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, the CM said.

He continued that the state has already adopted NEP but there is a need for full implementation. As such, this Infosys Springboard Scheme would surely help in implementing NEP effectively. Under this project that is worth around Rs 25 crore, tablets would be provided to as many as 1000 students studying in government schools in the first phase. It will cater to all the government schools in a phase wise manner, the CM added.

Biren also said that the government has launched some schemes and projects to improve the educational system in the State. Some of them are School Fagathansi Mission and Star Education, he added.
