MK Stalin launches Illam Thedi Kalvi scheme

Chief Minister MK Stalin on Wednesday formally launched Illam Thedi Kalvi (education at doorsteps) scheme to reduce the learning gap for children from Classes 1 to 8 due to COVID-19 lockdown.

Stalin, unveiling the scheme in the Villupuram district at a school, pointed out that during the closure of the schools, online classes were conducted for the students. “However, it is a known fact that benefits in physical classes cannot be replaced through online classes,” he said. 

Claiming that this new scheme would be very unique, the Chief Minister said the Illam Thedi Kalvi in Tamil Nadu will set an example for other states.
