However, data from schools which have not been connected so far. A feasibility study has been conducted by the NIC for computerisation of deptt.. Naturally, computer-knowing manpower would also be needed to man these computers.
The Deptt. proposes to connect schools with districts as well headquarters so as smoothen flow of information . Deptt. proposes to buy computers and peripherals software for applications and arrange net working and connectivity between schools and Directorate. Technical manpower shall be hired to operationise applications centrally and train people initially, operation and installation of computer at school level could be sourced.
