    District Additional Collector Narsingh Rao has directed officials to promote adult literacy as part of the New India Literacy program. He emphasized the need for concrete actions to implement the program effectively at the field level during a review meeting at the IDOC conference hall. The district officials from relevant departments were urged to actively create awareness about literacy among all adults.

The goal is to make 5 crore people literate from 2022 to 2027. Volunteers will be selected from beneficiaries like kindergartens, college students, and young men and women who have studied in the village. Education will be provided at convenient times.
