Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit Gujarat on September 27 to launch education-related projects worth Rs 4,500 crore. In Chhotaudepur district, he will address a public gathering and then attend an event at Science City in Gandhinagar, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit. During his visit to Chhotaudepur, the PM will inaugurate or lay the foundation stones for various projects under the ‘Mission Schools of Excellence.’
This initiative, launched by the PM last year, aims to enhance education quality in the state by improving school infrastructure, including new and smart classrooms and computer labs. PM Modi will also launch new education sector schemes, such as residential schools and merit scholarships.
The ‘Mission Schools of Excellence’ project involves an expenditure of Rs 10,000 crore over the next five years, covering all government and grant-in-aid schools. These funds will be used to build new classrooms, create smart classrooms, establish computer labs, and tinker labs across the state’s schools. Additionally, the 10th edition of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, themed ‘Gateway to the Future,’ will take place in Gandhinagar from January 10 to 12 next year.
PM Modi initiated this summit in 2003 to position Gujarat as a global leader in industry and trade.
