Government run colleges in Assam will have to adopt a village each as part of an initiative by the BJP-led government to make the education sector in the state more accountable and efficient. Education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said on Monday that every government college will be given Rs 5 lakh annually to promote cleanliness, adult education and co-curricular activities in the adopted villages.
The government has also planned many initiatives to improvise the living standard, education level and health factors of rural Assam with the help of its pre-established institutions.
“Promotions of teachers would depend on development in the villages and new appointments and government funds will be stopped for those institutions that don’t adopt villages,” he told a review meeting attended by college principals.
