To fulfil this objective MEd students of Panjab University (PU) did a survey on provisions of Right to Education (RTE), Adult literacy and digital literacy in Kasauli village near Chandigarh.

They collected data from all the households with regard to the present status of elementary and adult education and digital literacy of the villagers.
Prof Nandita Singh informed that the program was designed in a way so as to make them aware of the challenges and opportunities available for students studying in rural settings.

the Nation in keeping their village and its surroundings clean. Students conducted door to door survey, filled questionnaire and interacted with villagers.
