All private schools to get textbooks by month-end

Special Correspondent

BANGALORE: The Minister for Primary and Secondary Education, R. Ramalinga Reddy, on Monday said textbooks will be supplied by the month-end to over 6,000 private primary schools.

Mr. Reddy told presspersons here that the supply of textbooks to schools has been delayed on account of a breakdown of machinery at Mysore Paper Mills (MPM) and shortage of printing paper. The department has supplied textbooks to all government and aided schools.

He said action will be taken against publishers who delay the supply of textbooks.
