Addressing presspersons here today, the president of the federation, S.H.Goudar, said the stringent conditions imposed in the Government Order issued in September 2002 had made it difficult for institutions to get grant-in-aid.
Some of the conditions imposed by the Government were that the schools should have been set up on a five-acre land, pass percentage should be more than 50, and at least 50 per cent of teachers and students in the schools should be SC/STs.
Mr. Goudar said the conditions imposed by the Government were stiff which would make many institutions ineligible for grant-in-aid.
Private managements started these schools with a service motto. With the available resources it was difficult for the managements to buy five or more acres of land.
The condition that the pass percentage in the SSLC examinations should be more than 50 per cent was rigid, particularly for schools in the educationally backward areas.
The Government should at least give one year's time after the sanction of grant-in-aid to schools to improve the pass percentage, he said.
Another condition about the composition of teachers and students was also stiff as many institutions provided employment to all sections of society.
As a one time measure, this condition should be relaxed as it was done in the case of educational institutions run by those coming in the general category in the early 1990s.
