HRD Minister Smriti Irani launched new mobile apps and web-based platforms for students to reduce burden of school bags and examination.
Parents and teachers can access study material online via mobile apps and through the website “E-Pathshala”.
“We are trying to leverage technology not only to bring more transparency in school education system but also to create new learning opportunities for the children,” Irani told reporters while speaking about the initiatives.
“Shala Siddhi”, another digital platform also revealed on Saturday, aims to improve schools.

“HRD Ministry now provides a window ‘I share for India’, in which digital initiatives aiming to spread learning can be shared”, said Smriti Irani.
‘Swacch Vidyalaya’ dream had been achieved and all government schools have toilets for girl school.
