By Our Correspondent

Lucknow: The Yogi government’s ambitious initiative to offer high-quality residential education to the children of registered construction workers is rapidly progressing. In this sequence, the admission process for both Class 6 and Class 9 in Atal Residential Schools will be completed within a week.

Despite the commencement of the school session on April 1, the declaration of entrance exam results for Class 6 and Class 9 has been delayed due to the enforcement of the Model Code of Conduct. Seeking permission from the Election Commission on behalf of the school committee is underway. Once granted, the results will promptly be announced, facilitating student admissions through counseling.

It is noteworthy that CM Yogi’s ambitious Atal Residential School scheme, launched by PM Modi last year itself, has been implemented across 16 divisions. Besides, construction of buildings is ongoing in Moradabad and Bareilly divisions, necessitating the transfer of students to alternative schools until completion. They will be relocated once the buildings are ready.

Preparation for admission process complete

Board Secretary Ghazal Bhardwaj mentioned that in the ongoing session, students who enrolled in Class 6 last year have progressed to Class 7, marking the beginning of their studies in the current session.

He said for the admission of students in Classes 6 and 9 in the new session, the results are currently awaited. Our results are ready, but due to the Model Code of Conduct, we were unable to declare the results in some places. We have sought permission in this regard from the Election Commission. As soon as the permission is received, the result will be declared and the process will be implemented within a wee”, he added..

He mentioned that their preparation has been completed, and after the completion of the admission process, teaching activities will also commence.

Uniforms, notebooks bidding process complete

The Secretary further mentioned that the bidding process for all necessary items, including uniforms, shoes, and notebooks for the children, has been completed and permission obtained for this. Once permission is granted, tenders for these items will also be opened, and all the items will be distributed among the students. There will be no delay in this process, he informed.

He added further that the interviews for the places where there was a shortage of teachers have been completed. The result of this has already been declared before the implementation of the Model Code of Conduct. However, appointments are yet to take place. As soon as the classes for the sixth and ninth grades begin, we will immediately appoint them and start the course”, he stated.

He said that the buildings are under construction in Bareilly and Moradabad divisions and are expected to be completed by July-August. After this, students studying in other schools will be shifted to the new building. It is worth mentioning that children from Bareilly division are currently studying in Lucknow, and children from Moradabad division in Bulandshahr branches of Atal Residential Schools .

Selection of 280 students in each school

As per the intention of CM Yogi, residential education is provided to the children of construction workers registered in Atal Residential Schools as well as to the children who lost their parents during the COVID 19 period. Selection is based on entrance exams in these schools. In the academic session 2024-25, 140 students will be admitted to Class 6 and 140 students to Class 9 in each school, totaling 280 students.

Notably, the percentage of boys and girls will be 50-50. There is also provision for reservation for 27 percent Other Backward Classes, 21 percent Scheduled Castes, and 2 percent Scheduled Tribes among the total seats.
