BENGALURU: The Union Ministry of Human Resources Development’s (MHRD) performance grading index (PGI) has rated Karnataka among the slowest in disbursing Central funds for education facilities. It has rated the state Grade 3 on a measure of six grades.

Although the state’s school education system was rated well in terms of equity, infrastructure, access, learning outcomes and quality, it reported a decline in the education system’s governance processes besides the slow pace of disbursing Central funds.

As mentioned in the report, compared to other states, Karnataka lacks in sending Central shares to actual beneficiaries and is delaying the release of funds allocated by Union government for various projects.
