Workers march to Parliament over price rise



Workers march to Parliament over price rise

New Delhi, Feb 23 (IBNS) Lakhs of workers, including men and women, participated in `March to Parliament’ on Wednesday protesting price rise.

This march was called by the Central Trade Unions and national federations of employees.

“The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) congratulates the lakhs of workers, men and women who participated in the `March to Parliament’ on February 23, 2011,” said the CPI-M in a statement.

“This united protest by all sections of the workers and employees is significant and is a powerful manifestation of the working class demanding the implementation of their five-point charter of demands,” said the CPI-M.

The rally was organized to protest against the failure of the UPA government to curb prices of essential commodities which has eroded the livelihood of the working people.

“The massive protest is a warning to the Manmohan Singh government not to proceed with the disinvestment of shares in the Public Sector Enterprises,” said the CPI-M.

“The Central government is selling off vital public assets in the name of disinvestment to Indian and foreign monopolists. This is part of the loot of resources which is going on in the corrupt regime of the UPA government.

“This protest signals the determination of the working class to oppose the sale of precious public assets cheaply.”

The CPI-M said while the corporates and big capitalists are allowed free rein to circumvent the law, corner resources, evade taxes and make huge profits, the government turns a blind eye to the gross violations of labour laws which provide limited protection to the workers.

The rally has demanded protection of the rights of workers in the unorganized sector and of contract and casual workers.

“The massive workers’ demonstration is a display of the united will of the working class movement to fight against the neo-liberal and anti-working class policies of the UPA government. The CPI(M) extends its full support to this united movement,” said the CPI-M.

INTEREST FREE ADVANCE OF RS.27000/- FROM THE VVN FOR PROCUREMENT OF LAPTOPS TO THE TEACHERS IN KVS



KENDRIYA VIDYALAYA SANGATHAN
18, INSTITUTIONAL AREA,
SHAHEED JEET SINGH MARG,
NEW DELHI – 110016


F. No. 110240/(3)/FC/20 10-KVS(HQ)/Budget


Dated 18th February, 2011


The Assistant Commissioner/Director
Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan,
All Regional Offices/ZIETs


Subject:     INTEREST FREE ADVANCE OF RS.27000/- FROM THE VVN FOR PROCUREMENT OF LAPTOPS TO THE TEACHERS IN KVS.



      Sir/Madam,

      Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan has been taking various measures to encourage use of computers and ICT methods in the teaching and learning process in Kendriya Vidyalayas. Efforts were made in the past to provide suitable training to the teachers both internally through In-service programmes and externally with the collaboration of other agencies like Intel, Microsoft & Oracle. Some of the teachers have procured PCs/Laptops on their own and some of them regularly seek advances / withdrawals from their PF account for this purpose. However, many teachers have expressed a need for institutional support for procurement of Laptops to be used as an aid in their curricular transactions in the KVs.

It has also been observed during routine inspections by the officers of the Regional Office that a large number of teachers do effectively use digital technology in their curricular transactions. The primary teachers (PRTs) use computers extensively on a regular basis. The multimedia facility available in the digital technology not only helps them to make their classes attractive but also contributes in making the learning of their students effective. Moreover, with the emphasis on activity based teaching — learning, these primary teachers prepare a large number of worksheets for their regular use in the classrooms, using the inputs from online and offline resources. The Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) who teach the secondary classes use digital technology for the two fold purpose of computer aided teaching/learning (CAT/CAL) and for carrying out student projects. The Post Graduate Teachers (PGTs) use digital technology with a focus to enrich their content and also search for various assessment items to be used in their classes.

      Therefore, in order to encourage more and more teachers use computers extensively in their regular curricular transactions, the Finance Committee of KVS recommended for approval of BOG for grant of interest free advance of Rs. 27000/- with an overall ceiling limit of Rs. 5 crore per annum from WN. BOG in its meeting held on 03.11.2010 approved the proposal for its implementation. This scheme will be implemented at the Regional level with each region is empowered to sanction interest free advance upto a total of Rs. 27 lakh for all applicants put together. For any sanction over and above Rs. 27 lakh, the Asstt. Commissioner of the Region has to get the approval of the KVS (HQ). Other detailed guidelines of the scheme is hereby forwarded for its implementation.



Yours faithfully,
(O.M. PRABHAKARAN)
