The Jammu and Kashmir Government has introduced a scheme for the students living along the International Border, with a motive to make up for the academic losses suffered by the residents due to the shelling and firing and the troubled scenario at the border. ‘Aapka School Aapke Gaon’, was launched under Border Areas Development Program today, to help and facilitate education of the students affected due to the border firing and would provide additional classes to cope up with the academic losses, Divisional Commissioner Jammu Shantmanu said. This would be beneficial for the village students situated within the range of five kilometer of the International Border and Line of control. Under this program scheme the district administration would identify suitable place in every border village for accommodating students and would ensure arrangements for lighting and seating for them.
