Hazaribagh: Four model schools
would be constructed in Maoist-hit blocks of Hazaribagh
district to provide education facilities to the children from
financially weaker families.

Deputy Commissioner Manish Ranjan, who visited
Barkagaon, Keredari, Churchu and Katkumsandi blocks last week,
has directed the Hazaribagh additional collector to identify
five acres of land for each school in these four blocks to
start construction of model schools, an official release said
here today.

The schools would be on the pattern of Central schools
with all amenities and children belonging to the poor would be
admitted to the institutions.

Several schools in remote areas across Jharkhand had
been raged by the Maoists since the state’s creation 11 years
ago.

In a separate order, the DC directed the additional
collector to pay compensation between Rs 15,00 and Rs 10,000
from relief fund to families whose buildings were damaged due
to rains in August/September this year at Katkumdag block of
the district, the release said.
