ABOUT 27 per cent of students don’t have smartphones and laptops to access online classes amid the Covid school shutdown.

The survey, conducted by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), covers 18,188 students studying in CBSE-affiliated schools, Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) and Navodaya Vidyalayas (NVs).
