Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Terming the AAP dispensation's decision to approve funds for improvement of government schools a "game changer", on Wednesday claimed it would reduce red-tapeism.

The government on Tuesday approved the funds under which it will get at least Rs 5 lakh annually per shift (morning and evening).

"This will prove a game changer in improving schools. Now schools won't need funds and approvals from sectt. This will cut red tape n enable schools to take their own decisions (sic)," Kejriwal tweeted.

According to the government, the funds for the schools running in two shifts will be Rs 10 lakh (five lakh for each shift SMC).

Earlier, the amount to be given would depend on the number of students in the school.
