Most educational Institutions buy resources that are very similar or same in nature. Only the Type and Quality differs, depending upon the cost one pays for buying the resource.
Example – All educational institutions needs to buy a products like school uniform, or a sportswear, stationery, shoes, socks, bags, notebooks and textbooks, reference material, furniture and fixtures, consumer durables, power savers, child safety products, language learning tools, food supplies, catering services, sports equipment, arts and craft material, fancy dress uniforms etc.
All educational institutions also avail services from various agencies who deliver services like catering services, sports training and specialised adventure sports training, test preparation and coaching for engineering college and medical entrance exam, structured specialised coaching in foreign / international languages etc.
