“The SRO 123 has been brought into force to keep a check on the mushrooming growth of private institution, for the betterment of our future generation and to provide better education facilities to them. The norms laid down under Sarv Shisksha Abhiyan (SSA) and Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhyan (RMSA) coupled with SRO-123 ought to be followed by all the educational institutions” he added.
