Text books for classes VI to X will have QR codes that will help students to access digital material related to a particular topic, do exercises and post them on social media. The initiative was undertaken with the technical support of the Central Square Foundation and Nandan Nilekan's EkStep Foundation. The QR codes were implemented at the end of chapters last year for non-language text books and from academic year 2019-20 it is being incorporated in Telugu, English and Hindi textbooks.
