BMC's proposal: Municipal schools in hands of private institutions; 10 per cent quota for public representatives

BMC proposed to include 10 per cent reservation for the public representatives in Municipal schools which are to be restarted in collaboration with private partnership


Amidst 35 municipal schools shutting down, the Education Committee earlier rejected the proposal to start municipal schools to private institutions under its 'Full School Management with Private Partner Teachers (FSMPT)' scheme. However, this proposal was submitted again on Sunday.

Earlier, 35 schools run by the corporation were closed and it was proposed to start these schools with public-private collaboration but this bid was not accepted.

Another proposal was presented by the BMC administration to give 25 per cent reservation for the members of parliament, legislative assembly, and council. However, the proposal has been presented again to the Education Committee but now with the demands of only 10 per cent reservation quota for the public representatives.

In the contract, it is mentioned that if the organisations escape from its Memorandum of Agreement, they will be penalised and their money will be seized.
