Nagaland Government is all set to distribute pen drives along with the study materials to the students of classes 5-12 from the rural areas. One of the key reasons for this move is the poor connectivity in the rural areas which restricts the learning of these students.

He stated that the pen drive will contain the syllabus covered during online classes being conducted since May 1, 2020.
The pen drive will help students from rural areas who are unable to access online facilities because of poor connectivity. As a measure to this problem, the pen drives have been loaded with the study materials which will be distributed to such students from classes 5 to 12.
