Will fully fund studies of martyrs’ children: Govt 23.3.2018 DNA: Opinion
The government rolled back its decision of restricting education waiver to Rs 10,000 per month on fees for children of soldiers from the armed forces killed or disabled in action six months after it came out with an order triggering resentment from various sections. Acting on a request from the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Finance in order dated March 21, 2018 said the education concession will continue without any cap. It said this will be applicable in government, government aided schools, colleges and institutes or those recognised by state and central governments.  There were several representations made to the MoD to revoke the order as it could  demoralise the families of soldiers. Soon after the 1971 war with Pakistan, the scheme to bear the cost of martyrs’ children was introduced. Sources said there had been several instances of the scheme being misused that prompted the change.   Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba, in his capacity as chairman, Chiefs of Staff Committee, had earlier written ...

Govt rescinds education fee cap for martyrs' children 22.3.2018 General News
Bowing to a demand of the armed forces, the government has removed the cap of Rs 10,000 per month on educational assistance given to children of martyrs or those disabled in action, eight months after imposing it. In a statement, the Defence Ministry said it had twice taken up the issue with the Finance Ministry which has now withdrawn the cap. Under the scheme, which was initially rolled out in 1972, tuition fee of children of martyrs or those disabled in action were completely waived in schools, colleges and other professional educational institutions. The government order in July last year saying the assistance under the scheme cannot exceed Rs 10,000 per month had triggered widespread discontent among all the three services. Three months ago, Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba, in his capacity as Chairman of Chiefs of Staff Committee (CoSC), had taken up the issue with the Defence Ministry, asking it to remove the cap. "The Ministry of Defence had persuaded the Finance Ministry twice

Mah govt to form SIT to probe 'scam' in Edu & Rural Devt depts 8.3.2018 General News
The Maharashtra government today announced an SIT probe into the alleged scam in the School Education and Rural development departments, where fake recommendation letters were issued to teachers working under the Integrated Education for the Disabled Children scheme. The IEDC scheme was stopped in 2009, leaving 595 teachers in the lurch. However, over fake letters were allegedly issued by officials from the Education and Rural Development departments to enable those teachers to work in the Zilla Parishad schools. Congress MLC Chandrakant Raghuvanshi raised the issue in the Legislative Council through a calling attention motion. "After shutting down the Centre's IEDC scheme, ideally, the 595 teachers, who were working as special teachers, should have been taken into the local bodies as primary teachers and helpers should have been given positions as peons at the local level," Raghuvanshi said. "However, a few officials from the Rural Development and Education departments .
