MBD Group held a Punjab distributors and booksellers meet at Radisson Blu Hotel, MBD Neopolis. During the meet, discussions on the recent announcements in the education sector in the Union Budget 2020 were conducted.

Multiple distributors and sellers from Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Patiala, Bathinda, Mohali and other parts of Punjab attended the meet, at which solutions to various problems were discussed. In the meet, pre-primary books featuring popular Disney and Pixar stories were introduced to booksellers.

Monica Malhotra Kandhari, managing director, MBD Group, said: “Allocation of Rs 99,300 cr for education sector and Rs 3,000 cr for skill development is indeed a positive step towards the overhaul of the education sector. The proposed IND-SAT test for foreign students, and emphasis on External Commercial Borrowing and FDI for education sector are other commendable steps introduced by the government to promote ‘Study in India’ initiative and make India an education hub. This budget has also taken care of the biggest challenge in the education sector — achieving higher literacy and employment through the announcement of full-fledged online degree programmes for the underprivileged students and building up of as many as 150 higher education institutions to offer apprenticeship diplomas. The announcement of new education policy will further standardise the education system in the country.”
