On Wednesday, the state government informed the High Court of Karnataka that a committee made up of senior state officials had convened in accordance with its directives to discuss strategies for bringing children who were excluded from the Anganwadi and educational systems into classrooms and shelters. Although the court has received information about the meeting’s proceedings, a report has been requested for two weeks. Senior attorney K N Phaneendra is serving as an amicus curiae in a public interest litigation suit filed by the High Court on its own.

10.12 lakh children are not enrolled in the state’s educational system, according to a survey carried out in rural Karnataka in October 2021 and in the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and 319 urban local body limits in March 2022. This number comprises 5.33 lakh kids between the ages of 4 and 6, 15,338 kids between the ages of 6 and 14, and another 4.54 lakh kids under the age of three.
