By

New Delhi, June 23, 2015: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today pitched for conducting an aptitude test for all students and greater synergy between the 'Digital India' initiative and related programmes of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.

He made the observations while reviewing progress of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan at a high-level meeting here.

He said each school in the country should plan its own targets, which it aims to achieve by 2022, India's 75th year of Independence.

At the meeting, the Prime Minister asked officials concerned to explore the possibility of a twinning arrangement between one class of a school in an urban area, and one class of a school in a rural area.

Advocating that the best teaching practices be identified, and a repository of the same created, for wider dissemination, Modi said basic data for all school teachers, such as Aadhaar numbers, email IDs and mobile numbers should be maintained in a database.

He also suggested Swachh Vidyalaya competitions among various schools for Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani and senior officials from her Ministry, NITI Aayog, and PMO were present on the occasion.
