Private aided schools: State govt to revive non-salary grants scheme
The sub-committee reported that five per cent of salary grant should be given to schools. The file kept moving and by that time, ministers changed. I had been pushing it for the past six months. The government agreed to give a five per cent of non-salary grant to schools. For example, if the salary grant of a school is Rs 1 crore then a non-salary grant of Rs 5 lakh will be given.”
Schools and teachers’ organisations in the city have welcomed the move. Managements of aided schools said the grant would come as a relief as they have been struggling to pay for maintenance and had to hike fees to bear these expenses.
“It is a victory of the school managements, teachers and even parents of students studying in these schools,” said a teacher at Swami Muktananda School, Chembur.
