Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan
The Centrally Sponsored Schemes viz ICT at schools, Girls’ Hostel, Inclusive Education for Disabled at Secondary Stage and Vocational Education were subsumed from 2013-14 under the RMSA. The subsuming of these schemes under the RMSA, would lead to significant financial savings and administrative rationalization of the provisions under the schemes which, on the one hand would add to the fund availability under RMSA and on the other hand, since interventions under these schemes extend to aided schools as also cover the segment of higher secondary, their subsuming under RMSA will in effect provide for convergence based implementation of RMSA with the inclusion of aided schools and higher secondary segment. These are now integrated component of RMSA
Though the benefits to aided schools as of now will be limited to the current interventions under the other schemes and to the exclusion of the core components of the existing RMSA provisions, at the State level the convergence would lead to integrated and inclusive (aided schools and higher secondary classes) planning and implementation.
