The teachers and students in Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) run schools will be under scrutiny as MCD is planning to install Management Information System (MIS) in its schools. The aim is to monitor the activities of the teachers as well as students as there were complaints against the teachers that they were not spending time in the school. The system will be installed in all the schools run by MCD costing more than INR10 crore. Prithvi Raj Sahwney, Education Committee chairman said, 'The system will not only help us in maintaining genuine record of teachers and students without any exploitation in the education department headquarters in Kashmiri Gate but also keep a tab on the arrival and total time spent by a teacher in the school without any botheration.'
Wipro will install the system in the Education department and will be completely operational within four to five months. He added, 'In the mean time, Bio-metric machines will be installed which will take two months for completion to record attendance of the teachers so that the records can be maintained and no one will be able to tamper with the records as it will be recorded in the headquarters simultaneously.'
