Now, free umbrellas for school students
After uniforms and shoes, Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has now decided to give umbrellas and raincoats to school students.
The decision would be of great help as poor students, many of whom study in the KMC schools, cannot afford umbrellas of their own, and so often have to miss classes during the rainy season. Umbrellas would be of help during the hot summer months too.
According to the head of the Education Department of the civic body, more than 35,000 students would be getting the umbrellas.
