Odisha Government Partners with Education Ministry to Implement PM SHRI Scheme

The Odisha government is poised to collaborate with the Ministry of Education, Government of India, to implement the PM SHRI Schools scheme. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two entities is expected to be finalized before the commencement of the 2024-25 academic year.

The Ministry of Education, Government of India, expressed its support for the initiative, emphasizing its commitment to strengthening school education and ensuring the holistic development of students in Odisha. The PM SHRI scheme, aligned with the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020), seeks to establish over 14,500 model schools across India.

Under the PM SHRI School initiative, which is a centrally sponsored scheme, various stakeholders, including the Central Government, State/UT Governments, local bodies, Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVS), and Navodaya Vidyalayas (NVS), will collaborate to establish these schools. The overarching goal is to create an inclusive learning environment that values and supports every student, aligning with the objectives outlined in the NEP 2020.

With an anticipated direct impact on more than 20 lakh students, the PM SHRI scheme aims to enhance the quality of school education and drive policy formulation and implementation. Over the course of five years, from 2022-23 to 2026-27, the initiative aims to not only benefit immediate beneficiaries but also serve as a blueprint for elevating educational standards nationwide.
