Why this module was developed?
This module was developed as experts and academicians were of the view that, millions of students dropped out of schools amid the covid-19 pandemic as educational institutions are not open and are taking classes online. Reverse migration has also worsened the scenario.

This scheme was launched by subsuming Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), Teacher Education (TE) and Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA).
