Churu: Taranagar municipality of the district is soon going to house forty five technically equipped government schools.

Piramal Foundation, a philanthropic section of Piramal group working in the spheres of healthcare, education, livelihood creation and youth empowerment, have launched an Educational Leadership program Project Kaleidoscope with the aim of making government schools of rural Rajasthan highly digitized.
Under the project, steps are being taken to install computers, projectors, printers and other required technical devices in the classrooms of the schools.
