New Delhi: As part of its e-governance
initiative, the Delhi Government on Monday introduced an online
system under which private trusts and entities will be able to
apply online for recognition of their schools.
Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, launching the online
system, said education department will have to take decisions
on the applications within stipulated period of two months.
The process currently takes around two to three years.
"With launch of the new system, the delays on account of
objection on various levels will be overcome as everything
will be online and transparent. Moreover, there will be no
harassment and delay," she said.
Any trust or organisation can apply for government
recognition of their schools on www.edudel.nic.in.
Dikshit said Delhi needs more schools and hoped that the
initiative will encourage private entities to set up schools
in the city.
She said currently 146 applications seeking recognition
of schools are pending with the government.
Speaking on the occasion, Education Minister Arvinder
Singh Lovely said with launch of the module, the Education
Department has become fully computerised.
Appointment, transfer of teachers, school record,
attendance, teachers identity as well as students` records
have already been computerised, he said.
