Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The state government has set a goal to make around 1 crore people literate in Madhya Pradesh by 2030. If the government achieves the set target, Madhya Pradesh will become fully literate within the next six years. The Rajya Shiksha Kendra’s State Literacy Mission Authority, under the aegis of the Ullas Nav Bharat Saksharta programme, has undertaken the humongous task of imparting foundation-level and numeracy literacy to over one crore people in Madhya Pradesh by 2030. The curriculum for Classes Class 1 to 3 has been made as the basis of the teaching programme.
