Dehradun, November 20
Relaxing admission norms for children hit by the mid-June natural calamity, the Uttarakhand Government will give them admission in Rajiv Gandhi Navoday Vidyalayas of the state without any entrance test while those orphaned in the tragedy will be given free education. Directives to this effect were issued by Chief Secretary Subhash Kumar while presiding over a meeting of the Uttarakhand Boarding Schools Committee here last evening, an official release here said. Rajiv Gandhi Navoday Vidyalayas were being run in all 13 districts of the state in which a total of 2,711 students study, Director-General of School Education Radhika Jha said at the meeting.
She said rules had been framed for appointment, including those of Principal and Vice-Principal, to different posts in these schools.
It had also been decided that 20 per cent of the grade pay would be disbursed to employees of the Education Department during their deployment in the remote hill areas, she said.
She said 80 per cent of the children from rural areas and 20 per cent from urban areas would be given admission in Rajiv Gandhi Navoday Vidyalayas, which were equipped with all necessary facilities like Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas.
Presiding over another meeting, the CS asked the officials concerned to conduct a base line survey of children suffering from malnutrition, the release said.
