AGARTALA, June 13 - The Tripura Government has enlisted the help of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur, to build a comprehensive data bank to monitor the education system in the State on a real-time basis.
The data bank, which will comprise status of teachers, non-teaching staff, information on schools, and progress of various government programmes, is considered a key area to improve the overall education system.
The entire system will be in the form of a grid. All offices of the inspectors of schools and district education offices will be connected to the Directorate of Education, said an Education Department official today.
�Ministers and other high officials will be able to check the status of a particular school within minutes as the data bank will be available online,� he added.
The official said the plan would not entail any government expenditure as private firms under their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) schemes would fund the project under the guidance of IIT, Kanpur.
