In some schools, teachers had passed on a few of the older copies of the books which were not in good condition, and three-four students were seen sharing one book.


A larger number of students have taken admission to government schools this academic year, but they are lagging behind private school students due to the lack of books.


According to the statement given by Dr Vijay Laxmi Nandal, District Education Officer, Rohtak, said that free books were given by the government to students of Classes 1 to 8.


"But it has been two months now that the children have not received the books. This is because the books have gone to the publishers," he said.


"Due to the absence of books, the education of children is affected, but some schools are making do with old books. Hopefully, the new books will come soon in June," he added.
