Bhubaneswar, Jan 9 : The Odisha government has decided to start extra classes for students who are weak in studies during the summer vacation from this year, School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash said on Thursday.
The move is aimed to achieve 'zero fail mission' in matriculation examination.
