Proposals finalized under CMSSY

Itanagar, Jul 13: A District Level Executive Committee (DLEC) meeting was convened today in the conference hall of DC Office here in the presence of local MLA Techi Kaso to finalize the proposals under Chief Minister’s Samast Shiksha Yojana (CMSSY). The scheme aims to improve the overall quality of education. The meeting was attended by the administrative officers and officers from all line departments.

Kaso stressed that the Capital Complex has the highest population and the maximum numbers of schools are in Capital Complex. Therefore, collaborative effort of the District Administration along with the Education Department is required to improve the overall scenario of education.

He stressed that every requirement of the schools cannot be met up and lauded the DC for verifying the ground reality and prioritizing the works on that basis. The MLA, however, recommended few changes in the proposal which was finalized. He further hoped that under the DC, significant changes would be made in the Capital Complex especially in the field of education.

Capital Complex Deputy Commissioner Prince Dhawan also stressed that the results of Xth and XIIth standards had thrown a very poor light in the education sector and our priority should be to improve the education scenario through both qualitative and quantitative achievement and we would like to see our students from Govt schools in the top institutes like IITs, AIIMS etc.

He further stressed that the system needs to be streamlined as in some schools there are shortage of teachers and in others there are excess. Therefore, we have also advertised 45 posts of contractual teachers under CMSSY to bridge the gap and make the system balanced, informed the DC. We have also made the proposal for in-service training of teachers which is to enhance performance and provide motivation to the teachers.

However, as Capital Complex has maximum number of schools and the fund is limited, therefore we have tried to give attention to only the immediate requirements like bench and desks, repair maintenance works, electrification etc to run the school.

CO (Education) Moyir Kato through a PPT presentation informed that a team of six officers had visited all the 74 functional schools of Capital Complex to carry out a base line survey to assess the gap in basic physical and social infrastructure under CMSSY and as per the report of the team, the proposal has been made, informed Kato.

She also explained in detail about the proposals approved under CMSSY, some of which are repair and maintenance of classrooms including CGI sheets, whitewashing etc, electrification (internal wiring), procurement of computer and printers, laptop, Xerox, internet etc and hiring of faculties/in- service training of teachers, conduct of PTA/PTM, inter-school competitions, procurement of furniture, etc.

Earlier, planning coordinator JP Bagang had briefed about the aims and objectives of the CMSSY. The main objective of the CMSSY is to provide flexible pool of resources for maintenance of Govt schools and colleges and bridge the critical infrastructural gap in technology and to improve the quality of education by giving flexible funds in the districts.
