Uttar Pradesh State Open School Board (UPSOSB)

The Uttar Pradesh State Open School Board (UPSOSB) is dedicated to providing quality education up to the secondary level for educationally disadvantaged students in Uttar Pradesh. Aiming to integrate girls and children from weaker sections of society into mainstream education, the Government of Uttar Pradesh replaced Patrachar Shiksha Sansthan Allahabad with the UPSOSB in 2008 through an Act known as The Uttar Pradesh State Open School Board Act, 2008 (U.P Act No. 27 of 2008), passed by the Uttar Pradesh Legislature on 29 August 2008.
