Delhi Government Allocates Rs 16,396 Crore for Education in Budget

The Delhi government has earmarked Rs 16,396 crore for education. During the budget announcement, Delhi’s finance minister, Atishi, stated, “In the previous ten years, significant reforms have been implemented in Delhi government schools. We increased the money for education in the national capital. Today, we propose a budget of Rs 16,396 crore for education in Delhi.

“Before the Kejriwal government, the condition of Delhi government schools were not good. People were forced to go to private schools to study,” Atishi added.

The minister also praised the former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, recognising his efforts towards enhancing the educational environment in Delhi. She highlighted that student outcomes in Delhi government schools have seen improvement under the Kejriwal government, surpassing those of private schools.

The minister declared the addition of 20,000 new seats in state-run universities, accommodating the current enrolment of 93,000 students across these institutions.

Discussing teacher training and recruitment, Atishi highlighted the efforts of the Kejriwal-led Delhi government in this regard. She informed that the government has been actively involved in the training of teachers, having already regularized 47,914 teachers, with an ongoing recruitment process for 7,000 vacancies.
