The child-wise information of the identified out of school children and STCs will be uploaded at block level under the supervision of block source coordinator of the certain block research centre (BRC).
A letter issued by the department of school education and literacy to all the states reads, “It is requested that the information regarding out of school children, STCs and their progress, as uploaded by the BRC is validated by the District Magistrate or an appropriate officer as authorised by the DM/DC.”
