Children Education Assistance and Reimbursement of tution fee

Following is based on recommendation of the 6th pay commission; see http://india.gov.in/govt/paycommission.php. Its effective 1st Sept 2008. As per a report in Dharitri the Orissa government is also planning to implementing it for its state employees.

The above numbers can serve as a benchmark for the state and the country to aim to provide for similar amount for every child’s K-12 education. They can start with kids with BPL parents, making it part of R & R, requiring every organization with more than 20(?) employees to provide to all their employees’ children, etc.

Ravenshaw on its way to become universally accessible

Thanks to initiatives by activist, poet and story-writer Sruti Mohapatra and the VC of Ravenshaw University, Ravenshw University’s proposal to make it universally accessible has been accepted and the university has received initial funds for it. Ravenshaw may thus become Orissa’s first universally accessible college/university/campus; and may be even the country’s first universally accessible university.

The budget that was submitted was as follows. I think all of it has been accepted. (Not 100% sure.)
