Student not found during drive

One out of 10 students enrolled in private-aided schools was not found during a statewide verification drive conducted by the government. Of the 2.84 lakh students mentioned on the rolls of such schools, about 30,135 could not be accounted for.

State officials said the institutions used the inflated figures to avail of additional government funding. The fraudulent practice was also observed in certain private aided schools in Mumbai and Thane, a senior state official said. The education department is expected to present its findings during a state cabinet meeting scheduled for Wednesday.

The state had conducted a three-day verification drive starting October 3 after a government report revealed that over 1.4 lakh of 7 lakh students enrolled in government-run and private-aided schools in Nanded were bogus. The drive was conducted across all 98,067 state-run and private-aided schools. Of 2.01 crore students, 18.76 lakh or 9.39% could not be found. Schools in tribal areas recorded the highest absentee rate at 30.94%. About 1.22 lakh students among 12.79 lakh enrolled in all such schools in Mumbai (both island city and suburbs) were not found during the drive. Neighbouring Thane district saw 1.90 lakh students out of 19.56 lakh enrolled not present.

The education department is now claiming that the government will save nearly Rs 30 crore in estimated expenditure on nutrition, uniforms, stationery for these students and salaries of teachers as a result of the drive. A presentation on proposed video surveillance network for Mumbai roads and a discussion on textile policy is also expected to take place during the meeting.
