Government needs to focus on areas such as agriculture, water resources, financial inclusion and skill development under the aspirational district programme, a study assessing the impact of the aspirational district programme has suggested.

While maximum districts out of 112 districts under the programme have achieved nearly 70% of their targets under the health and education sectors, agriculture and financial inclusion are the main areas of concern for most aspirational districts as their average scores lie farthest away from the frontier. “Most of the districts are 40-90% away from their targets,” the study has found.

According to the study, in health and nutrition the economic impact of reducing severe acute malnutrition (SAM) among children is felt through the effects on productivity and lifetime learning. “The overall economic impact for all the states (only looking at aspirational districts) of reducing SAM is estimated to be a mammoth Rs 1.43 lakh crore,” the

5 financial issues schools will face due to the coronavirus-induced recession

The education sector was still feeling effects from the Great Recession when the coronavirus pandemic shuttered school buildings this spring, sending the country into economic shock — one that is expected to be much worse than the 2007-2009 recession.

Federal education aid
