BHUBANESWAR: The Odisha government on Tuesday decided to provide free school uniforms for students of ninth and tenth standards run by the scheduled tribe and schedule caste development department, official sources said.

Stating that 41,995 students would be benefited by the programme, an official release said it would be funded by the chief minister's Relief Fund.

The state government through the Odisha Primary Education Programme Authority was providing free uniforms to students upto standard eight in all government run schools while those in standard tenth were being given bicycles.

These efforts had helped to reduce dropout rates in schools, they said.
