Rajasthan Government to Distribute Free Education Kits to Students
Rajasthan government has planned to distribute free education kits to students, which will include nail cutters.

The government will distribute the kits under the 'Sarva Siksha Abhiyan' (Programme for Universal Education). These kits will include textbooks, geometry boxes, erasers, pencils, note books and nail cutters.

Education Minister Ghanshyam Tiwari said nail cutters had been included because long and dirty nails of students can lead to diseases. He said students in remote areas did not have access to nail cutters.
