Background

The Government of NCT of Delhi is endeavoring to bring transformative change to reinforce the School Education system. Various policy and administrative initiatives have been taken to this effect, including a decision to restructure Vidhayala Kalyan Samiti (VSK). Accordingly, the fund under VSK scheme had been renamed as School Management Committee (SMC) fund to line up with the provision of RTE Act, 2009. The Government has also enhanced the allocation of funds to SMCs and earmarked the objectives and purpose for which this fund can be utilised by the schools so as to promote decentralization of decision-making process. However, being a new and significant policy initiative, the SMCs require adequate guidance and training to discharge their responsibilities effectively.  Furthermore, intensive data analysis is also needed to understand the efficacy of the system and to improve its functioning.
