The Government of Maharashtra has made a decision to adopt the Delhi school model in order to enhance the quality of education being provided to students in municipal corporation schools. Initially, schools under Mumbai, Pune, Pimpmri-Chinchwad, Navi Mumbai and Nagpur municipal corporations will follow the Delhi education model.
According to reports, the decision was made by Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar. Speaking at a school education review meeting at the Mantralaya, Pawar said that the Delhi school education model is considered the best in the country and should be replicated to raise the standard of education in Maharashtra. Pawar further added that the Delhi model will ensure effective financial management.
The Maharashtra government will initially implement the Delhi school model on a pilot basis in the public schools of Mumbai and once it is successful, the model will be replicated in public schools across the state. Moreover, the Greater Mumbai Municipal Corporation has been asked to evolve a framework after studying the Delhi school model.
