Mumbai: Maharashtra government has decided to start 101 primary schools in the border areas of the state.

The decision comes amid reports that there were not enough educational facilities to impart education in Marathi medium in certain parts of the state, especially in border areas.

"State government has taken a decision to start 101 Marathi medium schools with the help of local bodies," a recent government resolution said.

Among other places, new schools would be started in Jat taluka of Sangli district, where there are 88 non-Marathi medium schools, in Gondia district, Savner taluka of Nagpur, and Korchi and Etapalli talukas of Gadchiroli.
