The PM SHRI Schools have been established in various parts of the country to cater to the needs of students in underdeveloped and remote areas. For instance, in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the government has established PM SHRI Schools in several districts, including Kupwara, Bandipora, and Ganderbal. These areas have a significant rural population, and the PM SHRI Schools aim to provide quality education to students who have limited access to education infrastructure.

One of the key features of PM SHRI Schools is their focus on promoting health and wellness among students. For example, the PM SHRI School in the village of Kakrola in Delhi has implemented a unique initiative where students are provided with fresh, nutritious meals every day. The school also has a garden where students can learn about organic farming and gardening. This initiative not only promotes healthy eating habits but also provides students with practical knowledge about agriculture and sustainability.

The PM SHRI Schools also emphasize the importance of physical education and sports. The PM SHRI School in the village of Mau in Uttar Pradesh has a well-equipped sports ground where students can participate in various sports activities. The school also has a gymnasium where students can learn about fitness and exercise. These facilities help promote a healthy lifestyle among students and encourage them to pursue sports and physical activities.

Moreover, the PM SHRI Schools also focus on providing a holistic education that goes beyond academics. For example, the PM SHRI School in the village of Bhusandpur in Bihar has a strong emphasis on co-curricular activities, including music, dance, and drama. The school also organizes cultural events and field trips to expose students to different cultures and experiences.

In conclusion, the PM SHRI Schools are significant in the context of India's education sector because they represent the government's commitment to improving the quality of education in the country, especially in underdeveloped and remote areas. These schools aim to provide a holistic education that promotes health and wellness, physical education, and co-curricular activities, which can help students develop into well-rounded individuals. The examples provided above demonstrate how PM SHRI Schools are making a positive impact on the education sector in India.

PM SHRI Schools is a scheme sponsored by the Central Government in India across the nation. It is aimed to develop more than 14500 schools and provide excellent schooling aimed to attain the goals envisaged in the National Education Policy 2020.

"It is aimed to make the students productive contributing citizens towards building an equitable, inclusive, plural society"

PM SHRI (PM ScHools for Rising India) was launched on Teachers Day 2022, i.e. 5th September 2022 by Honourable Prime Minister Sri.Narendra Modi.

The PM SHRI scheme is to be implemented from 2022-23 to 2026-27 and is expected to directly benefit 20 lakh students. It is intended to provide futuristic infrastructure to these schools. These schools are expected to become examples and pioneer models in due course and will be extended or escalated to other schools too in due course. PM SHRI schools are to provide mentoring and leadership to other schools nearby.

After 2026-27, the State or Union Territories are responsible to continue the benchmarks attained by these schools.
The selection of schools for this is by a transparent system. Schools have to apply themselves in the designated online portal for this.

The total project layout is about Rs27360 crore during the five-year period. The centre will bear almost fifty per cent of the total layout. As of now, about 6500 schools are selected. It is also reported that about 9000 schools are shortlisted from 2.5 lakh eligible schools. The schools are selected on the basis of parameters "curriculum, pedagogy and assessment access and infrastructure human resources – leadership inclusive practices and gender equity management, monitoring and governance and beneficiary satisfaction"

However in some states procedures like MOU with Education Ministry, etc. are reportedly still to be done.

On Teacher's Day 2022, a new initiative called PM SHRI Schools (PM School for Rising India) was announced by our Prime Minister. Under his new scheme in the first phase, 14,500 schools will be upgraded.

The Pradhan Mantri Schools for Rising India (PM-SHRI) Yojana aims at developing some of the existing schools from the Central Government/ State/ UT Government/ local bodies. These schools will be provided with all required facilities like laboratories, internet, library, and sports facilities. These schools will be the experimental fields for the new National Education Policy (NEP). In these schools, the necessity of going green will be taught and implemented. Waste management, recycling, Water conservation etc will be taught in detail to the students and will become a part of the curriculum.

In addition to just theory teaching, the students will be trained in the application part of the subject they study and will focus on improving the skills of the student.
The students from these schools will become skilled individuals. These schools will act as guides to other schools.

If the concept is implemented in true spirits, we will see 360 degrees of change in the skill set of the student and our younger generation will be ready to lead the world in the next century, I feel. But write and thinking is easy but implementation is very difficult in the present political situation in the country.

I hope this scheme will give yields equal to the time, money and energy that is being spent on this concept and implementation.
