Around 60,000 pieces of textbooks are still inadequate in Karnali province.
The Surkhet-based Janak Education Material Centre Provincial Office said it has not been able to supply adequate textbooks in Surkhet, Dailekh, and Jajarkot districts of Karnali province.
As shared, the office has requested the Centre to arrange around 60,000 textbooks required for the districts.
Chief of the Provincial Office, Dhana Bahadur KC, shared that the textbooks of Nepali, Social Studies, Science, Health & Physical and Occupation for Grade-8 are still lacking.
The students have not yet accessed textbooks this year due to a delay in the printing of books by JSSK.
The new educational session commences from Falgun (February-March) in hilly districts and from Baisakh (April-May) in mountainous districts.
Students and their parents are worried about not getting textbooks as the half-yearly examinations are already at the threshold.
