Speaking after laying the foundation stone for Rs 2.5 crore new building of Green Park Central School and PU College here on Sunday, he said government is making sincere efforts to minimize the gap between aided, un-aided and private education institutions in terms of grants.

The state budgetary allocations for education which was at Rs 4,500 crore about 4 years ago has now increased to huge amount of Rs 10,500 crore.
