Sub: INTEREST FREE ADVANCE OF RS.27000 /- FROM THE VVN FOR PROCUREMENT OF LAPTOPS TO THE TEACHERS IN KVS.
Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan has been taking various measures to encourage use of computers and ICT methods in the teaching and learning process in Kendriya Vidyalayas. Efforts were made in the past to provide suitable training to the teachers both internally through In-service programmes and externally with the collaboration of other agencies like Intel, Microsoft & Oracle. Some of the teachers have procured PCs/Laptops on their own and some of them regularly seek advances/withdrawals from their PF account for this purpose.
However, many teachers have expressed a need for institutional support for procurement of Laptops to be used as an aid in their curricular transactions in the KVs. It has also been observed during routine inspections by the officers of the Regional Office that a large number of teachers do effectively use digital technology in their curricular transactions. The primary teachers (PRTs) use computers extensively on a regular basis. The multimedia facility available in the digital technology not only helps them to make their classes attractive but also contributes in making the learning of their students effective. Moreover, with the emphasis on activity based teaching — learning, these primary teachers prepare a large number of worksheets for their regular use in the classrooms, using the inputs from online and offline resources.
The Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) who teach the secondary classes use digital technology for the two fold purpose of computer aided teaching/learning (CAT/CAL) and for carrying out student projects. The Post Graduate Teachers (PGTs) use digital technology with a focus to enrich their content and also search for various assessment items to be used in their classes.
Therefore, in order to encourage more and more teachers use computers extensively in their regular curricular transactions, the Finance Committee of KVS recommended for approval of BOG for grant of interest free advance of Rs. 27000/- with an overall ceiling limit of Rs. 5 crore per annum from WN. BOG in its meeting held on 03.11.2010 approved the proposal for its implementation.
This scheme will be implemented at the Regional level with each region is empowered to sanction interest free advance upto a total of Rs. 27 lakh for all applicants put together. For any sanction over and above Rs. 27 lakh, the Asstt. Commissioner of the Region has to get the approval of the KVS (HQ). Other detailed guidelines of the scheme is hereby forwarded for its implementation.
