Ministry of Education releases Rs 7,622 cr under Samagra Shiksha scheme: Ramesh Pokhriyal

NEW DELHI: The Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on Sunday said that the  Union Ministry of Education has released Rs 7,622 crore so far in 2021-22 to the States and Union Territories (UTs) under the Samagra Shiksha scheme. This amount has been released for the smooth continuity of free books, uniforms, running of Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas, education, vocational education, information and communication technology and digital initiatives.

the Union Education minister said the priority of the present government is to promote 'ease of governance' and 'ease of doing business'. For this we had launched a PRABANDH system last year to help conduct 'Padho and Badho' meetings to approve the annual plans of the states under the Samagra Shiksha scheme.

This has enabled the states to upload plans and everyone to view and evaluate it from remote/own locations with automatic compilation by the system, he added. This yielded better results at less cost. It was extremely difficult to achieve it in physical mode, Nishank said. Pokhriyal said till now under the Samagra Shiksha scheme for 2021-22, Rs 7,622 crore has been released to the states and Union Territories on Sunday.
