This is the 16th edition of the state-government's annual school enrolment drive - Shala Praveshotsav - which aims to improve the school enrolment ratio in the state, an official release stated.
The drive was started by Narendra Modi when he was chief minister of the state.
Anganwadi children, along with students of class 9 and class 11, were also enrolled during the function, said the official release.
While speaking at the function, Rupani asked the locals, who are mostly tribals, to promise that they would send their children to schools.
