Such new business lack in proper planning for curriculum setup, teaching faculties training, integration with existing school systems and compliance with local laws.

There should be centralized mobile apps and websites developed by MoE with the aim to provide best-in-class techniques, training, business collaborations, and new trends across the education industry. Every single school in the country has to be a member of this group. Through these apps MoE can perform surveys and seek opinions pertaining to existing polices or new ideas.

    Proper audit is needed for all the government university in kolkata. I have very bad experience in some popular university in kolkata who are not transparent. Please do audit and take needful action.
    I request education minister to visit school and university in a regular intervals to improve their system and infrastructure.
    I am extremely sorry to say the best lady college in kolkata is unreasonable to provide drinking water and light in toilet. Also the toilet in the college is too dirty so students avoid to use that.
    Please look into the matter.
    I would like to suggest to provide proper training for the teacher so that they can be efficient to conduct online classes.
