All the schools will have to form management committees, with all the stakeholders as its members. The move is aimed to set accountability in motion and to address the complaints of parents against the school administrations, where their children are undergoing schooling to improve the system in the private.


"Central Education policy framed in 2019 will also be soon implemented in Jammu and Kashmir," he said.
