Far and away the most common provision comprises the 1.3 million anganwadi centres (AWCs) run by the Ministry of Women and Child Development across the country under the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) scheme. The other is the burgeoning private sector, with privately managed primary schools offering pre-primary LKG and UKG classes, spread across rural as well as urban India. A few states in India offer a third possibility as well, in the form of preschool classes integrated within government primary schools, for example in Assam and Jammu and Kashmir.�

The report further said, �Deficiencies are particularly marked in Jammu and Kashmir and most of the north-eastern states. In these states, less than 50 per cent schools had provision for drinking water or girls� toilets available in 2018. With the exception of Assam, majority of schools in states in the North East did not have library books available for students in 2018. While elsewhere in the country the midday meal was served on the day of the visit in well over 80 per cent of schools, this proportion was less than 50 per cent in many states in this region.�
