CM prod to hire teachers

Ranchi, Sept. 12: “Education for all, participation of all” is chief minister Arjun Munda’s latest motto, a declaration he made today while reviewing the human resource development (HRD) department.

To bring his idea to fruition, Munda ordered that all formalities for filling 2,513 vacancies of schoolteachers and 12,000 teachers in upgraded schools be completed within 15 days.

HRD officials were also asked to immediately take steps to float tenders for purchase of textbooks to make sure students can begin studies at the start of the next academic session.

The chief minister also expects the HRD to update its official web page within 15 days, prepare online compendium and send hard copies to block offices, besides linking all its schemes with the management information system.

He has set a deadline of November 15.

Munda also expressed reservations about poor utilisation of funds in the last fiscal. Against an available corpus of Rs 1,800 crore, barely Rs 1,200 crore was utilised. This fiscal, the department has Rs 2,500 crore in hand. Munda stressed on effective financial management as well as proper monitoring of centre sponsored schemes.

He also ordered strengthening of school management committees, making panchayat education committees more effective and developing social audit.

“These will be possible only if honest efforts are made at the district level. And every small or big information ought to be post on the website so that the ordinary man can have easy access to the schemes,” he added.

The chief secretary was directed to prepare necessary guidelines for effective execution of schemes involving distribution of uniforms, nutritious food, et al among children. Munda opined that model schools could be run on the lines of Kendriya Vidyalayas.
