Jammu, Mar 23: Seventy-four government schools in Kashmir division and 50 in Jammu division are without students. This was revealed by the Education Minister Naeem Akhtar in the upper house today while replying to a question of NC MLC, Dr. Shehnaz Ganai.
A total of 124 schools in Jammu and Kashmir have no students. Naeem Akhtar told the house on Monday.
"There are 50 schools with zero per cent students in Jammu Province while in Kashmir Division, 74 schools have zero per cent students," Akhtar said.
Ganai pointed out deficiency of teachers in schools in rural areas as compared urban areas and sought the details from the government on recruitment of teachers in schools having less number of the faculty as compared to the students vis-à-vis the schools with more teachers than the students. Minister said the government will the fast track recruitment and "we are rationalizing the process".
Akhtar said during last two years, 27 schools have been upgraded from Primary to upper Primary level under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan (SSA) and classes in all these schools have started. The Minister said in the current year 40 schools have been upgraded but classes were yet to be started.
He said 468 middle schools and 332 high schools have been upgraded under State Plan without the approval from the Planning and Finance departments for creation of 5720 posts with financial implications of Rs 243.8 crore per annum.
Akhter said there are 95 government Degree colleges functional in the state, out of which 23 were sanctioned during last five years. He said government equipped these existing degree colleges with all necessary infrastructure facilities including buildings, laboratories and libraries to facilitate them to become fully functional.
With regard to opening of new degree colleges in left out areas, the Minister said Higher Education Department has already constituted a Committee to look into the feasibility or other parameters and to devise a mechanism for establishment of new degree colleges at uncovered places/areas of the State.
Akhter said the Committee has submitted the feasibility report; however, an appropriate decision shall be taken in consultation with the Finance and Planning Departments subject to the availability of resources.
