Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan

25-April-2012,Under Rashtriya Madhyamic Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA) the physical target for 11th Five Year Plan was to open about 11000 new secondary schools (Classes IX-X), against which opening of 9670 new secondary schools has been sanctioned. The Working Group on Secondary Education has estimated a requirement of about 20000 new schools for 12th Five Year Plan. 

Annual Plan proposals received from the States/UTs during last three years i.e. from 2009-10 to 2011-12 were placed before the Project Approval Board (PAB) of the scheme for consideration and various interventions including opening of 9670 schools and strengthening of 34311 existing schools were approved for those proposals which complied with RMSA norms. 

Implementation of RMSA is reviewed in the meetings of Project Approval Board. Recently, several Centrally Sponsored Schemes including RMSA were reviewed in the Conference of State Education Secretaries held in January 2012. Need for continuing of sharing pattern of 75:25 between Centre and States in the 12th Five Year Plan, adoption of State Schedule of Rate and extending RMSA to Government aided schools etc. were identified commonly by States and are part of the recommendations of the Working Group on Secondary Education for 12th Five Year Plan. 

This information was given by the Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Dr. D. Purandeswari, in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
