Adding to the interventions aimed at increasing accessibility and inclusivity in education, the Uttar Pradesh government has planned to establish new Eklavya Model residential schools in four of the state's district.

State Government's initiative to facilitate education for the underprivileged

While two Eklavya schools are already operating in Bahraich & Lakhimpur, one is undergoing construction in Lalitpur.

Country to have a total of 750 Eklavya schools

In the recently announced budget for the new financial year, the Union Finance Minister emphasized enhancing inclusivity in education and declared that 750 Eklavya model residential schools would be set up across the country. This would ensure that quality education reaches the deepest corners of the country.

As of now, the country has 462 Eklavya schools that are trying to provide an infrastructure for comprehensive physical, mental and social development of the children from the deprived regions. With the state government's latest project, Lucknow would add to the list of cities that are facilitating education for underprivileged children.
