Centre to set up more Sanskriti-type schools in country

In order to secure admissions for children of civil servants, the Centre has decided to open more schools like Delhi-based Sanskriti School in other parts of the country.

The decision in this regard has been initiated after the government observed difficulties faced by the officers, who are transferred to other locations in the middle of the year.

According to PTI reports, a draft policy issued by the department of personnel and training ( DoPT ) stated, "It is, therefore, the view of the government is that as a welfare measure the Government of India should also encourage and support opening of Sanskriti type schools in other parts of the country."


"Even though Kendriya Vidyalayas exist in several cities of the country to cater to the educational needs of wards of government employees, these do not fulfill the objectives to resolve the problems of transferable central government employees," the draft policy said.

Centre to set up more Sanskriti-type schools

Establishing Sanskriti-type school in any state capital can be initiated by the state government. It is not obligatory to set up such schools in every state capital.

"Central government support would be provided only after careful examination of the justification with priority given to large metro cities where large number of officers are posted," the policy said.

Centre has sent a proposal to establish Sanskriti-type school in state capitals, including Lucknow, for which the state government has already alloted land at Chak Ganjariya.

The Centre has also signed an MOU with the state government to set up schools in Shillong, for which ten acres of land has been reserved by the Meghalaya government at Mawdinangdiang, informs the proposed policy.
