Guwahati: Assam will soon have a database with the professional and personal details of school teachers and non-teaching staff of all high and higher secondary government schools in the state.
Under the new step taken by state Education Department, each teacher or non-teaching staff and each school will be given a personal identity number for easy identification. Photos of the employees and the schools will be stored in the database that will later be made available on the department’s website.
The database will also include schools’ infrastructure, so that efforts to improve the education system could be planned in a better way to suit specific needs.
“The basic purpose of taking up the project is to have a central database on human resources, school infrastructure, number of employees, posts and other details so that any information regarding them is available at the click of a mouse,” the official said.
The state public sector undertaking, AMTRON had been entrusted with the responsibility of carrying out the job. “The database will also bring to light the discrepancies, if any, like one person occupying more than one post or vice-versa. From time to time, vacancies created after retirements would be known.
Under the plan, details relating to joining date, sanction order, name of the post, subjects being taught, salary details, whether being transferred, kind of training (if any) undertaken, seminars/workshops/conferences attended (with complete details) educational qualification (matriculation onwards), full residential address (present and permanent) and other details will be sought.
Bank account number along with the name of the branch, telephone numbers, awards/recognition received (if any, with details), extra-curricular activities like games, music, NCC, Scouts/Guides training, physical disabilities (if any) and others would have to be given.
Personal details like marital status, religion, caste, name of spouse and other dependants (with photos, dates of births and educational qualifications), relationship with teaching/non-teaching staff and the like will be collected and added to the database.
