RAJYA SABHA 

The Government is in the process of working out an Implementation Plan for the recommendations of the National Knowledge Commission, which envisage, inter-alia, development of modern Libraries across the Country. 

This was stated in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today by the Minister of State for Planning and Parliamentary Affairs Shri V. Narayanasamy.

The National Knowledge Commission’s recommendation on development of modern Libraries across the Country is at http://www.knowledgecommission.gov.in/recommendations/libraries.asp and http://www.knowledgecommission.gov.in/downloads/recommendations/LibrariesLetterPM.pdf . The annexures in the later has details.

It is a good document and talks about the staffing level of various levels of libraries and what services they should offer, but it does not come out and clearly emphasize that libraries should be made at state level, district level, block level etc. and a funding scheme should be devised for that.

    It is very sad to say that till today no action had been taken for the implementation of the project. My sincere request to hon’ble prime minister please purse the matter as soon as possible. I have no background to put pressure on you or to sit on hunger strike , as an ordinary man and a library lover as well as professional it is my foldded hand appeal to you .

    with thanks and regards
    Rabin kumar khandayatray.
