ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE FOR TRIBAL AFFAIRS 

(SMT. RENUKA SINGH SARUTA)

(a) to (e): Government has decided to establish Eklavya Model Residential School (EMRS) in every block with more than 50% ST population and at least 20,000 tribal persons as per 2011 census. Accordingly, in addition to the existing 288 schools sanctioned under Grants under article 275(1) of Constitution, 452 new schools (cumulatively 740 EMRSs) are scheduled to be established in the blocks fulfilling the criteria and provision of suitable land by the State. As on date, a total number of 679 schools have been approved across the country, out of which 367 are functional. State-wise details of all EMRSs sanctioned with their construction status and functional status, including that of Jharkhand and Bihar, are at Annexure.

(f) and (g): It takes around 2 years for completion of construction of school after “formal sanction” is granted. However, concerned states are advised to identify alternate building for starting the schools in the location approved so that students may not be deprived of the education. The reason behind delay, if any, in establishment of EMRS is mainly due to delay in identification of suitable land by the concerned State Governments, issues related to forest clearence and court cases while trnasferring the land in the name of the State society.
