As shared by the office, the Center has been requested to arrange around 60,000 textbooks required for the districts.
Chief of the provincial office of Janak Siksha Samagri Kendra, Dhana Bahadur KC shared that the province is particularly short of the textbooks of Nepali, Social Studies, Science, Health & Physical and Occupation subjects of grade eight.
