Bhubaneswar, Jan 12:
Odisha Government has decided to bring Plus II education under the Mass Education department from existing Higher Education department from next academic year.
As per information provided by Higher Education Minister Pradeep Panigrahi today, instruction has been issued to the department to complete the formalities within a month and submit a report on the same.
The state government would receive additional Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhijan (RMSA) grants for curriculum and infrastructure development because of this move, cited Panigrahi.
Earlier, the state used to lose funds worth Rs 130 crore every year because of the old plan and the Union Human Resources Development ministry had advised the state government to segregate the courses.
Plus III education, however, would continue to remain under the Higher Education Department as before.
