3. Summary & Findings

Most of applicants as well (22/24 Ekhlaspur BKPs !) And also almost all reasons why BKP applicants need scholarship is for PTC. Because school has not enough teachers. So students need personal question time and private coaching. PTC is also needed for school teachers because their salary is very low (this is one of the reason why school has no teacher).
