Interestingly, there was no electricity in 34,098 schools though they incurred an expenditure of Rs 64.22 crore on wiring and electrical fitting.
Free text books were not provided to 26.22 lakh children during 2012-16 (when the Akhilesh Yadav-led SP government was in power), though adequate funds were received under Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), it said.
Free text books were provided with delay ranging from one month to over three months because of lax tendering and transportation.
Besides, uniforms were not provided to 97 lakh children during the period under review though adequate funds were received under SSA, it added.
