Rules and Guidelines on Pre-Schools and Play Schools


Rules and Guidelines on Pre-Schools and Play Schools


Pre-school Education is one of the six services provided to the Children of 3-6 years of age under Anganwadi Services Scheme. The Ministry has notified the National Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) Policy on 27.09.2013. The vision of the policy is to achieve holistic development and active learning capacity of the child below six years of age. It recognizes multiple models of ECCE service delivery through public, private, and non-governmental service providers including Anganwadi Centres (AWCs), play schools, pre-schools, etc.

The Policy clearly lays down basic non-negotiable quality standards to be followed by all ECCE service providers. The standardized facilities envisaged in the Policy inter alia, relate to building and infrastructure; safety and security aspects; pupil-teacher interaction; caregiver; child ratio; learning experiences planned for children; health, nutrition and protection measures; qualification and professional development of staff; parent and community involvement and organisation and management of the ECCE provision.

For ensuring optimal development of children, National ECCE Curriculum Framework and Quality Standards for ECCE has been notified and circulated to all States/UTs on 23rd January, 2014.
The Government has also issued guidelines on 23rd November, 2010 regarding procedure for admission in schools in class 1 (or pre-primary class as the case may be) under section 12(1)(c) under RTE Act, 2009.

Ministry of WCD has released the following documents on 01.09.2017: i. Activity Books for 3-4 years old children ii. Activity Books for 4-5 years old children iii. Activity Books for 5-6 years old children iv. Recommended list for Play and Learning Material (PSE Kit) v. Child Assessment Card

Government of India Enhanced the honorarium of AWWs and AWHs w.e.f. 1.4.2011


Government of India Enhanced the honorarium of AWWs and AWHs w.e.f. 01.04.2011
WAGES TO ANGANWADI WORKERS
The Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) Scheme (now renamed as Anganwadi Services under Umbrella ICDS Scheme) envisages the Anganwadi Workers(AWWs) & Anganwadi Helpers (AWHs) as “ honorary workers” from the local community who come forward to render their services, on part time basis, in the area of child care and development. Being honorary workers, they are paid monthly honoraria as decided by Government from time to time.

The Government of India has enhanced the honorarium of AWWs and AWHs at Anganwadi Centres (AWCs) by ₹1,500/- & ₹750/- per month raising it to ₹3000/- & ₹1,500/- per month respectively w.e.f. 01.04.2011. The honorarium of AWWs at Mini-AWCs has been enhanced to ₹2,250/- per month w.e.f. 04.07.2013. Since these functionaries are paid fixed honorarium, their honorarium is not indexed. Besides this, most of the States/UTs are also giving additional honorarium to AWWs and AWHs out of their own resources for any additional work assigned to them from time to time. The Government of India releases funds consistently for regular disbursement of honorarium of AWWs/AWHs. The details of additional honorarium being paid by respective States/UTs are at Annex-I.

Since the Anganwadi Workers and Anganwadi Helpers are honorary workers under the Integrated Child Development Services Scheme, they are not entitled for minimum wages.  In a ruling of 07.12.2006 in Civil Appeal No.4953-4957 of 1998 – State of Karnataka & Ors. Vs. Ameerbi & Ors. the Hon’ble Supreme Court has also held that Anganwadi Workers do not hold any civil post and Minimum Wages Act is also not applicable to them.

The incidences of 1/3rd workers having not received their remuneration on time during 2014 and 40 percent of them having used their personal finances to fund Anganwadi Centres(AWCs) have not come to the notice of the Government. However, any specific grievances on delay in payment of honorarium received from an individual ICDS functionary is forwarded to the concerned States/UTs for taking corrective measures from time to time.

From time to time, States/UTs have been requested for the timely payment of honorarium to AWWs and AWHs. The States/UTs .receive adequate funding since a provision of ₹15,245.19 crore has already been made during the current financial year as against the budgetary provision of ₹14,000/- crore during the previous year. To ensure that AWWs/AWHs receive timely payment, States/UTs have been asked to remit their honorarium directly to their bank accounts.

Annexure-I Annexure to Lok Sabha Starred Question No.109 for answer on 09.02.2018 Statement indicating additional monthly honorarium paid to AWWs/AWHs by the States/UTs from their own resources (as on 31.10.2017) .
* Depending on the qualification and number of years of service

450 Rare Diseases Recorded in India


450 Rare Diseases Recorded in India
Genetic Diseases
It is estimated that globally around 6000-8000 rare diseases exist. However, 80% of all rare disease patients are affected by approximately 350 rare diseases. So far about 450 rare diseases have been recorded in India from tertiary care hospitals. Lack of epidemiological data on incidence and prevalence of rare diseases impedes understanding of the extent of the burden of rare diseases in India. Recognizing the need to gather epidemiological data, Indian Council of Medical Research has recently launched ‘Indian Rare Disease Registry’ for certain rare diseases, including Thalassemia and Sickle Cell Anemia.
An estimated number of 1,20,000 to 1,50,000 patients are affected by Sickle Cell Disease in India with 20-35% carrier rate in tribals and other backward communities. The estimated number of beta Thalassemia cases is 1,00,000 to 1,20,000 with a carrier rate of 3-4% in overall population.
Diagnosis facilities are available for screening, control and management of Hemoglobinopathies (Thalassemia, Sickle Cell disease) disorders. However, no study has been conducted on the diagnosis rate of other rare diseases in India. International data indicates that diagnosis of a rare disease may take upto several years. According to a recent report, it takes patients in the United States (USA) an average of 7.6 years and patients in United Kingdom (UK) an average of 5.6 years to receive an accurate diagnosis.
Rare diseases poses a challenge to public health systems globally and more so in developing countries like India. Lack of epidemiological data, difficulty in conducting pan India epidemiological studies for each rare disease, challenges in diagnosis and management of rare diseases, challenges in research and development of drugs and diagnosis modalities, unavailability of treatment, the exorbitant cost of drugs for treating rare diseases etc. are a big challenge.
Majority of rare diseases are inherited diseases and not treatable by vaccine. Also no vaccines are currently available for treatment of rare diseases. Some diseases like Sickle Cell anemia may be benefitted by pneumococcal vaccine in addition to the vaccines routinely recommended. These vaccines are provided free of cost by the States.
Comprehensive Guidelines for prevention and management of Hemoglobinopathies have been developed and shared with states. ICMR, through
its flagship projects like Jai Vigyan has covered all aspects of overall diagnosis, training, awareness and management of Hemoglobinopathies in India and through the tribal health forum projects, the same has been extended to specific tribal groups in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. ICMR and other Government funding agencies also promote active research in these areas through various intramural and extramural research programmes.
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has also formulated a National Policy for treatment of Rare Diseases in India to progressively build India’s capacity to respond comprehensively to rare diseases. On the whole, the Policy seeks to strike a balance between the interest of patients of rare diseases and health system sustainability. ICMR has established 2 Centres of excellence of primary immune-deficiencies (PIDs) one at PGIMER, Chandigarh and one at ICMR-NIM, Mumbai for improving diagnostic facilities for PIDs and understanding their prevalence and pattern in India. Under NHM, States/UTs are also being supported for prevention and control and management of Thalassemia & sickle cell.

CIBIL Reports : No Change in this Practice


CIBIL Reports : No Change in this Practice

CIBIL Negative Reports
Lenders exercise their commercial judgement to grant loan or otherwise to borrowers based on the Board-approved policies of banks and financial institutions (FIs). Information contained in Credit Information Reports (CIRs) obtained from Credit Information Companies (CICs, which include TransUnion CIBIL Limited, formerly Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited) is one of the factors in the credit appraisal process.

The decision to approve or reject a loan is taken on a holistic basis, taking into account all relevant factors forming part of the credit appraisal process, and not on the basis of CIRs alone, and as such non-approval of loan cannot be ascribed solely to defaults.

No information is maintained regarding whether a customer has become a defaulter knowingly or unknowingly. RBI has directed CICs to provide access in electronic format, upon request, one Free Full Credit Report once in a year to individuals whose credit history is available with CICs.

CICs only provide CIRs and do not provide any defaulters list. As per the reporting practice of TransUnion CIBIL Limited, amount overdue is displayed in CIR and indicates the total amount that has not been paid to the lender in a timely fashion, which includes principal and interest amount. No change in this practice, or any other steps in this regard, is under consideration of the Government.
