Through this initiative 20 Lakh children have been surveyed and out of which, 93,508 students have been found out of schools or never enrolled. Mainstreaming of out-of-school children has been initiated in the appropriate age schools. The government of Jammu and Kashmir is committed to provide education with a value system to all meritorious students.
