Lucknow, Mar 10 (UNI) Seven Vidyagyan Public Schools would be established in Uttar Pradesh for providing quality education to economically-challenged rural students.

The information was provided by UP Chief Secretary P K Mishra here this evening.

He said the first Vidyagyan school would be opened in Bulandshahr district by SNN Trust and will begin its admission process in the academic year 2008-09.

It would absorb around 100 students from 10 districts of the state in it's first year. As part of the scholarship programme, students from rural areas who were potential high achievers, but lack exposure to a competitive environment, would be given an equal academic opportunity to learn and level with their urban counterparts, Mr Mishra informed.

A MoU in this regard was signed by Principal Secretary Secondary Education Arun Kumar Mishra and Chairperson Managing Committee Vidyagyan T S R Subramanian in the presence of Mr Mishra and Shiv Nadar, the Managing Trustee SSN Trust and Chairman/Chief Strategy Officer, HCL Technologies.
