The state government in Ludhiana has recently directed the Municipal Corporation to shift its schools and 28 ETT teachers to the education department. It is noted that seven schools are running under Municipal Corporation.
The MC schools at Chet Singh Nagar, Ishar Nagar, Janta Nagar, Basti Jodhewal, Iqbal Ganj and Subhash Nagar are running under Ludhiana MC. MC Joint Commissioner from Ludhiana, Amarjit Singh Sekhon said, “State government has sent an order to shift the teachers. The process is started and the teachers will be shifted to education department and the schools will also come under education department.”
Nine years ago these schools were given to MC to look after the repair work of the schools. The schools do not have a playground for children, have less staff to take care of the children, lack of infrastructure, benches and classrooms, which has lead the government to take this step.
Municipal Corporation came into existence in 1978. First time elections of Municipal Corporation Ludhiana were held in year 1992.
