The number increased to 1,58,000 in 2019, then to 3,00,000 in 2020, 14,00,000 lakh in 2021, and then 15,73,000 in 2022. This year, the figure has crossed 38 lakh.

“These guest students and teachers will be taken to places of national importance like the Rajghat, Sadaiv Atal, Prime Minister’s Museum, Kartavya Path etc to make them acquainted with our rich legacy,” he added.
