The mission was first launched by the CM Biren Singh at a function held at Yumnam Huidrom Government High School, in Imphal West District on January 18.

Under the mission, one High or Higher Secondary School in each Assembly Constituency was selected in the first phase. Manipur has 60 Assembly Constituencies.

The state education department has set a target to increase enrollment of students from 26,000 at present to around 44,000 in the next academic session.

Once a teacher is posted in these schools, he or she would stay there for at least 3 years, he said.
