Earlier, the Ministry of Education has claimed that Meghalaya has become the worst performer in school education in India as the state is placed at the bottom of the chart with just 649 points.
Five NE states-- Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh--were among the worst performers as per the Performance Grading Index, which was released three months back by then Education Minister  Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.
The Performance Grading Index report has come as a major embarrassment for Meghalaya, which aims to become an educational hub.
According to the report, Meghalaya's performance was the second-worst in the country, after Bihar, mostly because of its lack of infrastructure and other facilities.
Now, in the higher education sector, the state continues this dismaying performance.
