Views: 181

Electrification will be funded through the IT@School programme for more than 20,000 classrooms in government schools this year. As many as 2,035 schools are expected to benefit from this drive which will be completed by December. Of these 1,045 will be high schools and the rest, higher secondary/ vocational higher secondary schools. Electrification will be done in 10 classrooms in a school and up to INR 15,000 will be given for this. In schools where the number of students is more, 20 classrooms will be given power connection. In addition to this, the schools will be given INR 5,000 each to upgrade their existing computer lab network. To install new such networks each school will be given INR 20,000. The electrification of 2,036 aided schools would be funded next year. The Education Department had issued orders allowing subscription to telephone connections preparatory to the installation of broadband facility in higher secondary and vocational higher secondary schools. Once electrification was completed, each classroom could have wireless access to the Net. The money for electrification would be deposited, in advance, in the bank account of the IT Advisory Committee of each school. The actual work should be supervised by the headmaster concerned and executed by the Parent-Teacher Association. Periodic progress reports should be filed at the district offices of the IT@School.
