DLEC approves proposals under CMSSY

ITANAGAR, Jul 13: The proposals under the Chief Minister’s Samast Shiksha Yojana (CMSSY) were approved in the Capital Complex District Level Executive Committee (DLEC) meeting held at the DC’s conference hall here on Friday.
The finalized proposals include repair and maintenance of school classrooms, electrification (internal wiring), and procurement of furniture, computers, printers, laptops and Xerox machines, and provision of internet facilities.
It was also decided to hire faculties and conduct in-service teachers’ training and interschool competitions.
Addressing the meeting, local MLA Techi Kaso called for collaborative efforts by the district administration and the education department to improve the overall education scenario in the capital complex, which houses the maximum number of schools.
Recommending a few changes in the proposals, the MLA lauded the DC “for verifying the ground reality before prioritizing the works to be taken up under the scheme.”
Pointing out the poor results in the CBSE examinations, DC Prince Dhawan said the system needs to be streamlined in some schools in the capital region.
“Our priority should be to improve the education scenario, and we would like to see our students from government schools in top institutes like IITs, AIIMS etc,” he said.
Dhawan informed that 45 posts of contractual teachers under the CMSSY have been advertised to fill the need for teachers and balance the system.
CO (Education) Moyir Kato informed that a team of six officers visited all the 74 functional schools in the capital complex to assess the infrastructural and other requirements of the schools, and that the proposal based on the field visit has been made.
Planning Coordinator JP Bagang said the main objectives of the Chief Minister’s Samast Shiksha Yojana is to provide a flexible pool of resources for maintenance of government schools and colleges, bridge the critical infrastructural gap in technology, and to improve the quality of education. (DIPRO)
