New Delhi, Dec 16: Union Human Resources Development Smriti Irani today laid the foundation of seven government-run schools in the national capital.
The school buildings will be constructed at an estimated cost of around Rs 110 crore by the Public Works Department within two years, according to the Delhi Education Department.
