379 school buildings in Marathawada region declared dangerous

By Pti

Mumbai, March 24: Stating that buildings of 379 Zilla Parishad schools in the Marathwada region have been declared dangerous, the government said here today that it would ensure a structural audit of such buildings by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).

"These buildings, constructed during the times of the Nizam's rule will undergo a structural audit at the earliest. The government will take help of institutes like IITs to carry out audit work. These buildings will then undergo repair work," Maharashtra Education Minister Vinod Tawde informed the Legislative Council.

 

He was replying to the Opposition during a calling attention motion in the Upper House. While replying to Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MLC Vikram Kale on the issue of vacant positions of headmasters in Zilla Parishad schools, Tawde said that a total of 254 posts in eight districts of Marathwada region lie vacant.

"Posts of headmasters are currently filled through the Public Service Commission. Technical problems in filling up these posts through the Commission arise when headcount of children goes down. We will change this system and fill up these vacant posts directly," Tawde said. "We will start filling up vacant posts from June, which is the new academic year," Tawde said.
