Higher education institute dissatisfied

Giving importance to the provisions of Right to  Education Act-2009, the government announced plans to recruit 50,000 grade-III teachers according to RTE guidelines. The government had claimed to complete the recruitment process in this financial year. However, the Opposition ridicule such claims "as for the past 3 years the government was making the same announcement."

The higher education institutes (non-technical) in the state are disappointed as the budget made no provision for the promotion of degree education. Not a single paisa has been allocated for state universities nor any schemes have been announced for those enrolled with private colleges. The management of these institutes have described the budget as under expectations.'

"Almost all the state universities are facing shortage of funds, faculty crunch and poor infrastructure," said vice-chancellor of a state university.

The government focused on curbing dropouts and absenteeism is evident from the launch of schemes like providing bicycle or travel voucher to girl students registered in Class IX. The government will charge the token amount of Rs 100 from each beneficiary. They are targeting 1.42 lakh girl children in this financial year. The scheme will provide around Rs 28.50 crore.

Insurance of Rs 1 lakh for primary, secondary and senior secondary students under the scheme Vidhyarti Suraksha Durgatna Bima Yogna' from the next financial year is again seen as an exercise to curtail dropouts and absenteeism.

To strengthen secondary and senior secondary education, they announce creation of 25,406 posts for principals, school lecturers, grade-II teachers and lab assistants.

It has given significant emphasis on expansion of technical education in the state. The announcement of an upcoming Union government institute Indian Institute of Information and Technology (IIIT) in Kota and brought cheers for those involved.

In a major boost to technical education in districts having no engineering college, the government has announced provision of free land to open engineering colleges in Barmer, Bara, Churu, Karauli, Dholpur and Jaislmer.
