The Andhra Pradesh (AP) government launched a new scheme, i.e. Jagananna Vidya Kanuka scheme, for helping all of the government schools that are finding it difficult to distribute uniforms and bags among the poor children. The AP government will provide uniforms, a set of notebooks, textbooks, shoes and socks, a belt and school bags to all students from class 1 to 10 studying in government schools.
