Girls studying in madrassas in Bihar will be provided free bicycles by the government, official sources said Sunday.
About 4,000 madrassa-going girls, who are students of Fauqania (equivalent to Class 10), would get the cycles to enable them to reach the seminaries on their own, particularly in rural areas.
Last year, girls studying till Class 9 in government schools were gifted bicycles.
Some madrassas in Bihar have begun modernising their educational system by introducing computers and science subjects.
