Govt schools to go computer friendly

The Delhi cabinet has decided to implement Information & Communication Technology Scheme in government schools as computer education has been included in the curriculum of Central Board of Secondary Education [CBSE]. The implementation of the scheme of the ministry of HRD would go a long way in making the students computer literate and IT trained.

The project would be implemented in Delhi between Classes VI and XII on a build, own, operate and transfer [BOOT] model through TCIL on nomination basis at specified rate per school.

Computer education programme started initially in August 2000 in 115 schools.

Later, over a period of time, it was extended to 727 government schools and 161 government aided schools. In pursuance to the request of MHRD, the Directorate of Education submitted a proposal to the Government of India for coverage of all 1,094 government and government aided secondary and senior secondary schools under the scheme as per the revised guidelines. The city government would also set up computer labs for all government schools and aided schools, for students in Classes VI to XII.

The latest computers, projectors and printers would be installed in the schools along with internet and quality software.
