Category 'A' of the prospectus covers the suitcase or trunk, chop box or rigid plastic container, toiletries, bedding, footwear, underwear, cutlery, and other educational materials such as a mathematical set and scientific calculator.
The second category includes detergents, sanitary and cleaning materials such as liquid soap, hand gloves, washing powder, bleach, brooms, standing mop, mob buckets, and a scrubbing brush.
