The objectives of setting of EMERS are to provide quality education up to Higher Secondary stage for Scheduled Tribe (ST) students in remote areas. This will not only enable the students to avail the facilities of reservation in higher and professional educational courses, but also help them to get jobs in Government public sector undertakings and private sectors. In fact these schools provide to access better opportunities in education at par with the non-ST population.
And this is achieved by:
