Children from low-income families will receive free education at Atal Residential Schools in Uttar Pradesh.

For admittance to the 18 such schools in each administrative division of the state, students must pass an entrance exam.

In Uttar Pradesh, children of labourers and those made orphans by the COVID-19 pandemic will soon have access to cutting-edge educational facilities as the state government has begun the admissions process for the Atal Residential Schools’ inaugural class. Children in classes six through twelve will receive a free education at the residential schools bearing Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s name, a pillar of the BJP and a former prime minister. Additionally, students will receive complete housing amenities.

For admission to one of the 18 such schools in each administrative division of the state, students must pass an entrance exam.

According to Anil Rajbhar, the minister of labour and employment for Uttar Pradesh, the sixth-grade school year will begin in July.

The labour department of Uttar Pradesh will oversee the management of the schools.

Only those who were born between May 1, 2010, and April 30, 2013, will be allowed to enrol in Class 6 in Atal schools. Only two children from a family may be admitted to school at a time by the government.

The goal of constructing Atal Residential Schools is to ensure the overall development of children of registered labourers, the minister remarked when discussing the purpose for their establishment. They will be able to integrate into society and secure a brighter future for their families as a result. Rajendra Singh, special secretary for the labour department, stated that the schools would operate similarly to Navodya Vidyalayas and adhere to the CBSE curriculum. There are around 10 authorised teaching positions at each of the schools. Teachers are now being appointed, and letters of appointment will be sent out next week.

The construction of 16 of the proposed schools has practically finished, but it is taking longer than expected in Moradabad and Bareilly, according to labour department officials.

Officials from the labour department stated that the admissions process won’t be impacted by this delay. “All 18 schools will participate in the admission process. For the time being, we shall make separate arrangements for Atal School kids in Bareilly and Moradabad, added Singh.

The newly built Atal school in the state capital is situated on 17 acres in Sithorikala in the Mohanlalganj block. The building of the school cost 70 crore. “The school has an academic block, separate dorms for boys and girls, a mess, teachers quarters, and the principal’s residence,” stated school principal Sukhvir Singh. The school is equipped with everything needed to create an ideal learning environment. Two of Raghunath Verma’s four children’s admission forms have been turned in. Raghunath Verma is a Lucknow-based mason who is registered with UPBOCW.

“I have submitted my 11-year-old son’s and my 10-year-old daughter’s admission forms for enrollment in the Atal Residential School. They attend a local private school and do well academically, but the cost of their education is exorbitant. In order for them to finish their education, I hope they be admitted to the Atal school, Verma remarked.

The Atal Residential School in Prayagraj was built near Belhat Village in the district’s Koraon Development Block for around Rs 70 crore. Over 80 kilometres separate the school’s location in Prayagraj’s trans-Yamuna neighbourhood from the district office.

Singh claimed that the regional Labour Department offices offer the entrance exam application form without charge.
