Bhubaneswar: After short supply of text books allegedly affected teaching in primary level last year, Odisha government claims to have supplied around 90 per cent of books to the districts in advance for distribution among the school children.

We have already supplied around 90 per cent of text books to the districts by the end of April. The rest books are expected to be supplied this month. Every student will have text books at the beginning of the session, according to project director of Odisha Primary Education Programme Authority (OPEPA), Gopal Krushna Mohapatra.

We have already written to the director of the text book printing bureau to expedite the work to supply remaining books. We think by the end of this month all the books will be reached in the districts, he said. Under the Sarva Sikshya Abhiyan (SSA), OPEPA is providing free text books to the students up to Class VIII. The supply of the textbooks however was reportedly irregular in several districts in the last some years. We have taken steps to ensure all the students will get the text books at the time of the beginning of the session, the project director said.

Mohapatra was here to attend the review meeting on the school education in ten southern Odisha districts, where the secretary, school and mass education Rajesh Verma presided. The government has approved Rs 2772 crore for SSA for this fiscal. The amount was Rs 572 crore more than previous year's budget, an official said.
