President grants approval to Himachal Pradesh Early Childhood Care and Education bill
President Ram Nath Kovind has granted approval to Himachal Pradesh Early Childhood Care and Education Centers (Registration and Regulation) Bill 2017. The bill targets to ensure quality education to children by offering all basic facilities.
The Himachal Pradesh legislation would bring early childhood care and education centres in the state under government monitoring. These childcare centres are controlled by trusts, societies, religious groups or international funding agencies, suffering from issues of equitable access, uneven quality and growing commercialisation.
The President of India has given nod to another bill, Tamil Nadu Vanniyakula Kshatriya Public Charitable Trusts and Endowments (Protection and Maintenance) Bill 2018.
