Jul 4, Kathmandu: Janak Education Materials Center decided to print the book after the private schools started using the books in government schools. The Janak Education Materials Cente, which is busy printing ballot papers for the local level elections has been struggling to print government school books on time. Demand for this specialty has grown significantly as a result of recent corporate scandals.
According to Chitra Bahadur Acharya, Information Officer of Janak Education Materials Center, five percent of the last 2 million books are yet to be printed. "Recently, there has been a demand for 2 million books, of which only five percent are yet to be printed," he said. "
This work will be completed within 10 days." According to Acharya, it took time to print the Nepali, social and English books used by the community schools as private schools started using them.
Stating that it is good for private schools to use government books, he said, "Some of the books used in government schools have been used in private schools. It is good." At present, the demand for books from private schools is also high, so it will take time to print the books. '
According to Acharya, the demand for books is increasing in schools in Kathmandu Valley. Besides, the demand for the book is also increasing in Ilam, Chitwan, Makwanpur, Biratnagar, Kanchanpur, and other districts.
Acharya said that books have been sent to some Himalayan districts including Humla despite complaints of a shortage of books. However, he said that it took time for the book to reach due to transportation. ‘There are complaints of lack of books from some Himalayan districts. But the books have been sent to those districts, 'he said.
Acharya said that the demand for English, social and Nepali textbooks for classes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 is high. He said that the delivery of the book to the students was delayed as it would take time to complete the printing of the book.
