Ref:- Certain NEWS items on nonavailability of rice in schools for PM POSHAN/ Jagananna Gorumudda Scheme
The attention of Regional Joint Directors of School Education and District Educational Officers in the state are invited that the Government is more emphasis on implementation of Jagananna Gorumudda /PM POSHAN. Honorable Chief Minister reviews about the program monthly twice and has given instruction to ensure proper implementation of the scheme.
Further, It is noticed that some of the schools in state are not getting the rice from FP Shops due to lack of generation of RO.
The main reason is due to the fact that Headmasters of these schools have taken PM POSHAN/ Jagananna Gorumudda rice form FP Shops manually without biometric authentication in e-pos. Already clear instructions have been given to DEOs to instruct the HMs NOT to take rice manually
Earlier, when the HMs had taken rice manually, the ROs could not be generated . However, the issue was resolved for twice by consolidating the list of FP shops which are having OBs and rectification of the the same with permission of Civil Supplies Department.
However, Civil Supplies Department has given clear directions that rice should not be taken manually here after as this lead to not only misuse of the rice stocks but also accounting issues.
Hence, all District Educational Officers in the state are instructed to direct the Headmasters to follow strictly instructions in taking rice form FP Shops as follows:
1. All schools must place the indent in IMMS app between 15th to 20th of every month.
2. All Headmasters must receive the rice form Fair Price shops with biometric authentication in epos devices only between 1st to 15th of every month.
3. FP Shop changes /MLS mapping will be done on 20th of every month once MDM distribution completed through epos.
These instructions should be followed scrupulously without any fail. if any deviation in placing indent in time and taking Rice from FP Shop within stipulated time through biometric authentication, it will be viewed very serious and concerned Headmaster will be held responsible and strict action against should be taken against the defaulters
Further, DEOs are instructed to issue necessary instructions to DyEOs, MEOs and Headmasters in this matter and review the issue closely on regular basis to avoid misuse of the rice stocks and to avoid disturbances in the accounting of the rice stocks.
