Rajasthan government nod to reopen education institutions from August 2 | Jaipur News

JAIPUR: The state cabinet meeting held on Thursday gave in-principle approval to reopen schools and other educational institutions, including coaching centres, from August 2 and decided to regularise recruitment of computer instructors in schools.
Earlier, the government had decided to recruit 10,453 computer instructors on a temporary basis which had invited protests by youth who recently met Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi in Delhi.

Education minister Govind Singh Dotasra told TOI that “all classes of schools and colleges will be opened from August 2 and an SOP will be issued separately”.
The meeting discussed in detail the opening of various educational institutions, including schools, colleges and universities. The cabinet sought the opinion of experts and doctors in this regard. The status of opening educational institutions after the second wave in other states was also discussed.
But the decision to open educational institutions has come under attack by parents’ organisations. Abhishek Jain, state spokesperson of Sanyukt Abhibhavak Sangh, criticised the decision and said, “It raises a question mark on the functioning of the government as a whole. On the one hand, the state government is claiming that there would be a third wave of corona, on the other, it is playing with the lives of children and parents by bowing to the pressure of private schools. Parents will not send their children to school until the state government and school operators take responsibility for the health of children.”
The council of ministers agreed in-principle that it would be appropriate to open educational institutions following Covid protocol and taking all precautions.
The cabinet had detailed discussion on the implementation of the Agriculture Infrastructure Fund announced by the Government of India. The concerned department was directed to frame guidelines for the scheme.
Earlier, the cabinet approved the Rajasthan Jan Aadhaar Authority Rules, 2021, to make the benefits of various schemes accessible to the common man easily and transparently. Effective implementation of Rajasthan Jan Aadhaar Scheme will be ensured through this independent authority. It was also decided to bring the E-Mitra project under this authority.
The cabinet approved the draft of amendment to the Rajasthan Tourism Business (Facilitation and Regulation) Act, 2010. This will make the provisions of the Act more relevant and in line with other legal provisions. It will make offences under this Act cognisable and punishable. This proposal will be presented in the assembly.
The cabinet has also approved the proposal to amend the Rajasthan Computer and Subordinate Services Rules, 1992. With this amendment, candidates can be given appointment from the reserved list to the posts that remain vacant due to candidates, who are selected by direct recruitment to the post of information assistant, not joining for the same.
The cabinet has approved amendment in the Rajasthan Medical and Health Subordinate Services Rules, 1965, for change in the educational qualification of the post of occupational therapist. With this decision, the vacant posts of occupational therapists in the medical and health department can be filled by direct recruitment.
