Central Schools Scheme – Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan – CBSE


            The second Central Pay Commission report submitted in 1959, in its report the commission has strongly recommended that the Central Government should encourage the growth of Education Schools with a common syllabus and medium of instruction for the benefit of the children of Central Government employees liable to frequent transfers as well as other floating population in the country.

Finally the Union Cabinet approved the Central Schools Scheme on the 20th November, 1962.

The central schools scheme had envisaged that the management and property of the Central Schools should be transferred to an Autonomous Body, which would receive grants from the Government of India. In pursuance of this and also the recommendations of the Inter-departmental Committee, the Central School Organization (since renamed as Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan) was registered as an Autonomous Body under the Societies Registration Act, 1860, on the 5.12.1965.

The scheme for establishment of Central Schools was approved by the Government of India in 1962 and its implementation was started by the Ministry of Education in 1963 when 20 regimental schools run by the Ministry of Defence were taken over and converted into Central Schools or Kendriya Vidyalayas. Later on the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan an autonomous body was set up by the Ministry of Education.

During the academic year 2000-01, there are 854 Kendriya Vidyalayas with a student population of approximately 7.5 lakh. There are two Vidyalayas abroad, one each in Kathmandu and Moscow.

(a) Since the pay component is inbuilt in RAC 1980 Formula for calculation of Kilometerage allowances, the rates as on 01-01-2006 should have been revised duly multiplying the mean scale of Passenger Driver / Guard with the VIth CPC fixation factor of 2.118 and correspondingly rates should have been fixed with the then existing T.A. rates and National Average kilometer for all categories of Running Staff.

(b) As on 01-09-2008. the revised KMA rates as per (a) above should have been doubled.

Post offices to offer core banking solution by next year

New Delhi: In a major exercise to boost its profitability, the Department of Posts (DoP) plans to introduce core banking solution besides setting up India Post ATMs and debit cards for its customers.
    
"We have set target of bringing in core banking solution by 2012. It will ensure smooth online transactions. We are giving some e-payment services, but they are fragmented," a top offical from Department of Post said.
    
He added that the work for setting up 1,000 India Post ATMs was in advanced stage and DoP had already held parleys with vendors on this front. "We will also issue debit cards to our existing savings account-holders," the source added.
    
The DoP is tying up with banks so that customers can use their India Post debit card at any ATM machine pan-India.
    
With a network reach of over 1.44 lakh post offices, DoP hopes to transform itself into a post bank.     "Yes, this is very much possible. We are offering three-fourth of a bank's services and have the widest reach. The infrastructure is almost ready. In fact, we have given this proposal to the Ministry of Finance and are waiting for its comments," he added.
    
The lack of modern banking facilities in rural areas and dependence of villagers on informal sector for their credit requirements prompted government to establish a post bank.

DoPT to train over 100 officials on handling RTI pleas

NEW DELHI: In order to deal better with growing intra-departmental RTI queries, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has decided to train its over 100 officials on different matters related to Right to Information Act.

The decision was taken after some of its CPIOs complained of difficulties in dealing with RTI applications. Officials said that some of its information officers were reprimanded by Central Information Commission for improperly disposing of certain pleas.

"We have called special trainers for a day-long workshop on July 6. They will answer all the queries related to RTI," a DoPT official said.

He said that 52 CPIOs and their appellate authorities have been chosen for the training and they have been asked to send their queries in advance to save time and ensure proper resolution.

According to official data, about 370 complaints related to Ministry of Personnel , Public Grievances and Pensions are pending with the CIC.

DoPT is also planning to conduct such training for CPIOs of other central government departments too.
