Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh State Education Minister Audimulapu Suresh said that the Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy aims to install 45,000 smart televisions in schools by the next academic year.
“Officials are working day and night to meet the CM’s deadline of completing work on the Nadu-Nadu initiative by the beginning of the academic year in June,” Audimulapu Suresh was quoted by Hindustan Times as saying.
This will be the first time that Andhra Pradesh government schools will stand neck to neck and give tough competition to the private schools and institutions in terms of digitalisation.
The government is aiming to implement the whole process in a phased manner. In the first phase, the government will install 10,000 smart televisions incurring a cost of Rs 45 to 50 crores.
Earlier, a review meeting was held in the first week of September at the camp office in Tadepalli. The chief minister told the officials that no student should be left out of digital education and all government schools should be equipped with the centralised integrated system.
