Govt moots proposal to enhance educational standards

New Delhi, Jan 17 (PTI) Government today mooted a proposal for an "institutional framework" to strengthen Centre-state collaboration in raising educational standards under the RTE regime with the involvement of key education regulators.

Such a framework would include educational bodies like NCERT, State Councils of Educational Research and Trainings (SCERT), CBSE, Council of Boards of School Education in India (COBSE) and National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE).

The proposal was mooted by HRD Minister Kapil Sibal at the meeting of central and state education regulatory bodies with an aim to ensure "constant coordination, continuous flow of information and dialogues between them", said an HRD Ministry official.

Sibal also said that the institutional mechanism between NCERT and SCERTs should also work towards developing question banks which could be used by states for their Teacher Eligibility Test.

Old-age pension to go into bank accounts only

New Delhi, Jan 18 (PTI) In an effort to streamline the old-age pension disbursal system, Delhi Government today decided to completely do away with paying the monthly emolument through post offices and instead it will be given through banks only.

Out of over three lakh old-age pensioners, 80,677 people have been drawing the amount of Rs 1,000 every month through post offices and they now have to open bank accounts within six months.

At a meeting of the Delhi Cabinet presided by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit it was decided to pay the old-age pension through bank accounts only, said Social Welfare Minister Mangat Ram Singhal.

The city government pays the old-age pension to poor people aged 60 years or above.

"We have decided to pay only through banks as it will help in smooth transfer of pension money. More than 2,13,000 beneficiaries have already been receiving their pension through banks," said an official.
