‘Grama Shikshana Pade’ to enrol students who stayed out of Schools due to COVID

December 6, 2020

House-to-house survey from Dec. 15

Mysore/Mysuru: The State Government has asked ‘Grama Shikshana Pade’ (Village Education Force) in Gram Panchayat limits to undertake house-to-house survey from Dec. 15 to 21 of children who left schools due to COVID-19 and enrol them back in Schools without delay.

Rural Development and Panchayat Raj (RDPR) Department has been instructed by Karnataka High Court to identify those children who may opt out of Schools following Corona this year in Gram Panchayat limits, and ensure their re-admission into Schools.

Panchayat Development Officers (PDOs) have been asked to maintain ‘Rural Education Registration Book’ to record number of students admitted to Schools in rural areas as per Compulsory Education Right Act, 2012. 

The survey work was going on as per directives of Karnataka Gram Swaraj and Panchayat Raj Act. Uma Mahadevan, Principal Secretary, RDPR, has asked Grama Shikshana Pade members to ensure enrolment of students and as well as inoculation for students of 1st, 5th and 10th standard students. Instruction to this effect had been given to Chief Executive Officers of all Zilla Panchayats.


A meeting should be convened on Dec. 11 by inviting Gram Panchayat staff, Anganwadi volunteers, representatives of Women Self-Help Groups, teachers and SDMC members to work out plan of action for survey of students who are not enrolled into Schools and those who are absent regularly for online classes.
