Government to merge Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan and Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan
The Government of India has decided to merge two of its similar education schemes – Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA) and Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA).
Both of the schemes have the aim of universalising education in the country.
At present, SSA is applicable for class 1 to 8 and RMSA for classes 9 and 10.
The government hopes to improve the reach of school-level education through the merger.
The Ministry of Human Resource Development is making the plans for combining the schemes.
