The Gujarat Government has decided to deduct grants of its grant-in-aid schools if the school performs poorly in Gujarat Board class 10 and 12 results. A deduction of Rs 300 instead of Rs 100 per student will be made for poor performance in the board results. Announcing the decision through his Twitter page, Gujarat’s education minister Jitu Vaghani said that the decisions taken to improve the result and standard of education in the state include a penalty of Rs 100 per student in grants under the result-based grant policy, which has now been hiked by Rs 200 per student, annually.
Introduced in August 2013, the Performance-Linked Grants Policy of the Gujarat government, linked school grant-in-aid to student performance in class 10 and 12 Exams. Under this scheme, schools with less than a 30 per cent pass rate in the Gujarat Board Exams were penalised with a Rs 100 deduction per student. However, after an amendment to the policy in 2015, grant-in-aid schools with less than 30 per cent result in either Class 10 or 12 were not eligible for any maintenance grant at all. Schools with 70 per cent or above pass results were eligible for a 100 per cent grant.
The latest announcement takes the policy back to its original model but with some changes.
