Baramulla: The Indian Army is hosting free tuition classes for the needy students of Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla region, media reports said.

Tuition classes for meritorious students of families below the poverty line have been started at Government Middle School at Tarzoo area of Sopore in Baramulla district of North Kashmir, reports ANI.

The classes are being conducted for the students of class 9th so as to bridge any capability gap in academic learning due to the COVID-19 lockdown period and prepare them for the future board exams, the Indian news agency reported.

So far, 50 students (30 girls and 20 boys) from nearby villages of Sopore are attending the classes.

"We are thankful to the Indian Army for providing us free tuitions," a student, Nelofar Rashid told ANI.

Five local teachers having vast experience in the field have been selected to teach all mandatory subjects including English, Social Science, Mathematics, Science, and Urdu.

"I am teaching Urdu here, with these free tuition facilities to students we got employment opportunities," Hilal Ahmad told ANI.
