After scores of complaints against malpractices involving inspection committees and to streamline the process, the state Education Department has planned to remove all middlemen and introduce online procedure for addition of sections in secondary and higher secondary classes at grant-in-aid schools.
From submission of forms, mandatory documents pertaining to the school and for the verification process, the online system would be used.
“The aim is to remove all the middlemen and speed up the system right from the application till the grant in additional sections in Class IX to XI. We would not deny that the department did not receive complaints and red tapism pertaining to this process. Also, for a long time now, the department was mulling over a system that could take care of all these issues,” said Commissioner of Schools Mukesh Kumar.
If succeeds, the department is planning to replicate the same system for addition or upgradation of classes in a school as well. This also follows a similar system like addition of section to a class.
