The DNSU asked the School Education Department to initiate necessary action on a priority basis on issues such as full and quality implementation of components under Samagra Shiksha (erstwhile SSA/RMSA), proper implementation of RTE Act 2009, clear demarcation of school areas by erecting boundary wall to avoid land encroachment, introduction of biometric attendance and rationalization of teachers.
It meanwhile urged that the government set up a committee on or before January 18 and necessary action be initiated at the earliest.
