Speaking at a function after inaugurating the 47th Jawaharlal Nehru State Level Science, Maths and Eco Exhibition at Cheran Matriculation Higher Secondary School here on Thursday, he said that the plan was to bring all classrooms and schools under the Internet network.
The facility would be created within this month. As many as 90,000 digital smart boards would be given to the schools. There were just 2.85 lakh chartered accountants in the country.
