Tamil Nadu has agreed to sign an MoU with the Centre for implementing the PM SHRI school scheme, the Ministry of Education said on Friday.

With Tamil Nadu agreeing to implement the scheme, Odisha, West Bengal, Kerala and Delhi are the only states which have not signed a memorandum of understanding with the Union Ministry of Education yet for having such schools.

“Tamil Nadu Government has taken an important decision to sign an MoU with Ministry of Education, Government of India to implement PM SHRI Scheme. PM SHRI are #NEP2020 exemplar schools,” the ministry wrote on X.

“The MoU will be signed by the State before beginning of next academic year 2024-25. This partnership between the Tamil Nadu Government and the Ministry of Education, Government of India, signifies stronger centre-state relations. We wholeheartedly welcome this initiative as it exemplifies the shared commitment towards ensuring holistic development for the students of Tamil Nadu,” it added.

The PM Schools for Rising India (PM SHRI) scheme targets to upgrade 14,500 schools and is expected to benefit 1.8 million students. It also aims to ensure these schools serve as model institutes and encapsulate the spirit of National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

The government has already selected 6,448 schools from 28 states and Union territories for upgrade in the first round.
