Setting Up Sanskriti type Schools


            Policy/guidelines for setting up Sanskriti type schools in the country have been framed with a provision of 60% seats for the wards of transferable officers of All India Service/Central Services. In case land is provided free of cost by the State Government 10% (out of the above 60%) seats will be reserved for wards of State Government employees.

           As per guidelines, the proposal to set up Sanskriti type School in any State Capital may be initiated by the State Government or Association of All India Services/Central Civil Services Officers in consultation with the Central Government employees Coordination Committee justifying the need to set up such a school at that Station. A proposal to open a Sanskriti type school in Shillong, Meghalaya has been received. However, no decision has yet been taken on the proposal.
          This information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Shri V. Narayanasamy, in written reply to a question, in the Lok Sabha today.
