Centre to follow C`garh model of `Porta Cabins`
Raipur: Impressed by the Chhattisgarh government`s use of `Porta Cabins` (pre-fabricated structures) for school infrastructure in naxal infested areas, the Centre has decided to follow the model in other states as well, an official said.
"Impressed with the use of Porta Cabins for school infrastructure in Naxal-dominated region of Bastar, the Centre has given approval to follow the model in other Maoist affected states," the official said today.
The central government has come up with a detailed plan under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan to provide funds for such schools in Naxal-affected districts. The states of Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, West Bengal and Bihar are set to benefit from this plan.
Chhattisgarh government has installed pre-fabricated structure for schools in all the districts of Bastar region. Pre-fabricated structure provides portability and saves time in terms of extending school education to the areas where Maoists have destroyed schools for the reason that they are used by para-military forces for anti-Naxal operations.
The central government initiative is a step in direction of bringing uniformity in efforts towards ensuring continuity of school education in naxal-affected regions.
"This decision comes as an acknowledgement by the central government about the committed efforts of the state government towards provision of school education in naxal affected areas by successful implementation of noble methods like running schools in Porta Cabin, the official said.
