“Education will be imparted according to the National Education Policy in these schools. The government has set a target to implement National Education Policy across the country by 2030 but in Haryana, it will be fully implemented by 2025,” he said.

The Chief Minisyter said around 5.5 lakh digital tablets were distributed to the students of classes X to XII to connect the children of government schools with technology. On the other hand, education is being imparted through smart classrooms in government schools in Haryana, he added.

Rakesh Bharti Mittal, Chairman of Satya School said, “Our Children are the hope of a better, progressive and happy tomorrow. We believe that every child is a born star with infinite innate potential, and education is a means to unleash that potential. Aligned with the National Education Policy of India, our students will be nurtured in a holistic learning environment and equipped with skills to take on the challenges of the fast-changing world.”
