New Delhi| In order to promote education in the society, the government is planning a nation-wide awareness campaign to encourage those who had left school midway to complete at least their secondary education through open schooling.

Speaking at an event organised by the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), Union Human Resource and Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar said every year 5 lakh students are passing through it and the target should be 10 lakh.

"We will organise a campaign to instill confidence in those people who have passed eighth or ninth class but have not cleared tenth. We will tell them come to National Schooling," Javadekar said at the event where Minister of State for HRD Upendra Kushwaha and School Education Secretary Anil Swarup were also present.
