Formerly a part of Bihar, Jharkhand is the 28th state of India since the year 2000. Apart from being a hub of industrial activities; the state boasts itself of being an education destination too, attracting students from across the country to get admissions in their programs from a plethora of disciplines.
However, Jharkhand has an inadequate educational infrastructure with the increase in population aggravating the situation. It has been noted that the Government has been unable to provide books since 2001 in this ‘Naxalite-Maoist’ hit state. (Inputs from Agencies)
