About NISA

8,000 schools
19 states
20,00,000 students

Why BPS?

  • Entrepreneurial response to meet urgent education needs by expanding access to the poorest children.
  • Increase choice and accessibility to education, serving diverse and disadvantaged communities.
  • Operate on wafer thin margins and emphasise learning outcomes rather than on infrastructure and facilities.
  • Face closure in the face of RTE norms and standards due to lack of required infrastructure and facilities.
