Nursery to Class 3 in these schools will be run as per the new portion, as a part of the first phase.

For the first phase, a list of 13 Ojas International Schools of Zilla Parishad has been announced on May 5, Saturday. This includes sections of Amravati, Aurangabad, Konkan, Nagpur, Nashik and Pune.

The initiative of the Education Department is to provide international education to the students of the rural areas.
