Between May 2011 and August 2011, the PAISA team went to around 1300 schools in 9 districts spread across 7 states  to do a detailed PAISA study on elementary education financing. The study focused on tracking the flow of funds from their point of origin (Central and State Governments) to their final point of expenditure.

 The 9 districts covered by the PAISA study are: Medak (Andhra Pradesh), Nalanda and Purnea (Bihar), Kangra (Himachal Pradesh), Sagar (Madhya Pradesh), Satara (Maharasthra), Jaipur and Udaipur (Rajasthan) and Jalpaiguri (West Bengal). More details can be found in the attached report.
