A Developed India will be Built from the Bright Futures of Children: Arjun Munda

Establishment of 91 Eklavya Schools in Jharkhand

Ranchi: Encouraging quality education for tribal students, Shri Arjun Munda, Minister of Tribal Affairs, Agriculture, and Farmer Welfare, Government of India, inaugurated Eklavya Model Residential Schools (EMRS) in Tantnagar, Manjhari, and Novamundi in West Singhbhum. On this occasion, he said that inaugurating the Eklavya School in Novamundi is a proud moment for him. Today’s day is dedicated to taking steps towards realizing the smiles of our children, their bright future, and the resolution of a developed India. He said that the PM Narendra Modi government at the center is giving special emphasis to the education and skill development of tribal youth. The concept of Eklavya Model Residential Schools has been envisaged to bring forward tribal talents so that talented tribal children are not deprived of education due to lack of fees. Our goal is to open approximately 740 such schools across the country, where around 3.5 lakh tribal students will receive quality education in their own environment. Currently, 402 EMRSs are functioning at full capacity, providing quality education to 1,21,640 tribal students. In the next 3 years, we are appointing over 38,000 teachers for the Eklavya Schools across the country. On February 2, 2024, the Prime Minister issued appointment letters to 10,000 teachers of Eklavya Model Residential Schools at a job fair. Smart classes are being established in 175 Eklavya Schools across the country to provide education in a modern way. Whereas in 2013-14, the total number of registered students was 34,365, compared to 1,32,275 in 2023-24, which is an increase of nearly 3.5 times. The number of active Eklavya Model Residential Schools has increased from 119 in 2013-14 to 402 in 2023-24, which is an increase of more than 3 times. At the event, Mr. B.N. Prasad, Joint Secretary of the Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Mrs. Meera Munda, Senior Officer of the National Tribal Students’ Education Committee, and other dignitaries were present.
