Guidelines of Jan Sikshan Sansthan


1.1 The population explosion, industrial development and migration of people from rural to urban areas have resulted in the very fast growth of the urban sector in the country. Rapid urbanisation has created many socio-economic problems making life miserable, particularly for migrants and deprived communities who normally live in inhuman conditions in the slums, on pavements, in settlement colonies, labour colonies etc. Many are first generation migrants exposed to the stark realities of complex urban life and the industrial milieu. Similar conditions affect people living in the peripheral rural areas who have links with the neighbouring urban agglomerations for employment, business, services etc.

Adult education is vitally important for these groups to improve their lives, decrease their dependency, increase their work efficiency and sharpen their capabilities for adaptation to social, economic and technological changes in the midst of their lives and work. The educational and vocational needs of these deprived sections constitute a specialised area of continuing education demanding its own strategy, institutional arrangements and techniques.

1.4 Relating this need and growing urbanization to the coming decades, the then Ministry of Education and Culture, Government of India, started a scheme of Shramik Vidyapeeths - a programme of Adult Education for Workers in Urban and Industrial areas. In the context of the country’s overall development, this programme was conceived as responding to the educational and vocational training needs of numerous groups of adults and young people. Men and women belonging mostly to the unorganised, urban informal sector, living and working in urban and industrial areas and persons who have been migrating from rural to urban settings, were expected to derive substantial benefits from such a scheme.

1.5 The first Shramik Vidyapeeth was established in Mumbai (Worli) in the year 1967 and gradually the number increased to 17 upto 1983, to 40 in 1986 and to 58 by the end of VIII Five Year Plan i.e. 1996-97. These institutions have already proved to be one of the best vocational adult education centres in the country and the courses offered by these institutions are in popular demand. Today, SVPs offer around 225 different types of vocational training programmes ranging from candle and agarbatti making to computers.

1.6 The implementation of the scheme of Shramik Vidyapeeths was evaluated by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), Mumbai in 1993. This exercise of evaluation came after the scheme completed nearly 25 years of existence. The objective of the evaluation was mainly to throw some light on the impact of the Shramik Vidyapeeth programmes and to make suitable suggestions regarding the desirable initiatives the Shramik Vidyapeeths should take in the future. TISS submitted its final report at the end of 1993. Some of the findings of the evaluation were:

  • As long as Shramik Vidyapeeths remain committed to the deprived sections of the society with its tailor-made programmes of polyvalent education, they have all the justification to exist as institutions outside the formal system and deserve financial support from the government;
  • The skill-oriented programmes of the Shramik Vidyapeeths are largely directed towards enabling the beneficiaries to be engaged in self-employment;
  • The Shramik Vidyapeeth scheme has the potential to equip individuals with the skills required to be gainfully employed;
  • None of the existing organisational structures is in itself against the interests of the scheme of Shramik Vidyapeeths. Shramik Vidyapeeths can function effectively as autonomous, non-autonomous or semi-autonomous institutions.
Keeping in view the findings of the evaluation, Shramik Vidyapeeths have been strengthened with enhanced annual grants.

1.7 Mass Campaigns for literacy in India have been essentially campaigns for social mobilization for awakening and arousing people in all walks of life. As people’s participation in Literacy Campaigns begin to increase, their involvement in socio-economic activities also becomes more meaningful. More than 85% of the country has been covered by the Literacy Campaigns and over 150 million learners in 9-25 age group, of whom about 62% are women have been brought within its ambit. Literacy has become a significant instrument of empowerment for the poor, neo-literates and oppressed groups.

1.8 Hitherto, the scheme of Shramik Vidyapeeths was restricted to urban/semi-urban industrial areas. Keeping in view the changing literacy scenario in the country and the large number of neo-literates to be covered under Continuing Education [in which skill development/ upgradation is a part], the activities of Shramik Vidyapeeths are proposed to be enlarged to provide academic and technical resource support to Zilla Saksharata Samities [District Literacy Committees] in taking up vocational and skill development programmes for neo-literates in both urban and rural areas and also to organise equivalency programmes through Open Learning Systems. To facilitate the playing of a better role, the institutions will now be renamed as Jan Shikshan Sansthan (JSS) - Institute of People’s Education (IPE) - with increased financial support.

2. CONCEPT
2.1 Jan Shikshan Sansthan (JSS) is conceived as an institute for conducting skill upgradation in the areas of programmes of Non-formal, Adult and Continuing Education. It would also provide academic and technical resource support to Zilla Saksharata Samitis in both urban and rural areas.

2.3 The polyvalent approach attempts to provide knowledge and skills in an integrated manner and rests on the following principles: a worker/ neo-literate must have continuous access to education and training throughout his life; each programme should be need-based; since needs vary widely, programmes have to be

2.4 The Polyvalent approach takes into account: learning needs convenience of place and time for learners and instructors variety in

8.1 Jan Shikshan Sansthan is a scheme of assistance to voluntary agencies enabling them to run a programme with the aims and objectives provided at page 6 of the guidelines.

8.2 In order to fulfill the objectives of the institution and to organise programmes for the identified clientele groups, each Jan Shikshan Sansthan should have qualified and experienced staff for the planning and organisation of the programmes, for developing and maintaining collaboration with other institutions/agencies and for the general administration of the Jan Shikshan Sansthan. It is, therefore, suggested that every Jan Shikshan Sansthan must have core staff which will include one Director/CEO who will be the administrative head of the organisation. He should be assisted by suitable selected personnel who would ensure:

The decisions with regard to the number of employees, their emoluments, their duties and functions and their designations will rest entirely with the Board of Management. The structure and shape of the staffing pattern will also fall within the purview of the Board of Management. As far as possible, the support services should be managed by hiring suitable service agencies so that work of a manual nature are not entrusted to employees.

8.3 The members of the staff of JSS are employees of the Sansthan /Parent Organization, as the case may be, and are not employees of the Government of India. The role of the Government of India is strictly limited to providing the registered society with financial assistance as per the approved financial pattern. This too, it is providing strictly on a temporary basis and is at liberty to withdraw such assistance without assigning any reason or issuing any notice.

8.4 The members of the staff of JSS shall be engaged on contract basis with consolidated emoluments, as may be fixed by the Board of Management. This will be effective from the date of issue of the guidelines by the Government of India. All the existing vacant positions shall be filled only on contract basis.

8.5 No contract shall be signed with any staff member for a period exceeding three years. Contracts for shorter period shall be signed at the discretion of the Board of Management. No contract shall be renewed after the period of expiry of the contract. A fresh contract shall be entered into.

8.6 The resources (human, physical and financial) of the JSS shall be utilised for the purpose of JSS only. Utilization of services of the members of staff of JSS by the parent organisation, use of JSS vehicle for other purposes and other transgressions shall be treated a serious violation of these guidelines.

8.7 The Board of Management of the Sansthan may decide the emoluments to be paid to staff members within the ceiling fixed by the Govt. of India.

8.7.1 The Annual Appraisal Report for the positions in JSSs will be written by functionaries one level above the position to be reported upon. The positions for which Director will be the Reporting Officer will be reviewed by the Chairperson. For others the Director will be the Reviewing Officer. (The Annual Appraisal report format will be provided by the Adult Education Bureau to all the Jan Shikshan Sansthans)

Financial Pattern For JSS
8.8 The JSS shall be classified into three categories depending on the nature of the city/town and the quantum of work carried out by the institution.

the provision for which has been indicated in para 1.5.12.

Building grant
The Jan Shikshan Sansthan will be provided a building grant of Rs. 20 lakh for construction or repair of Jan Shikshan Sansthan building. However, the amount will be released subject to the following conditions:

  • The land or building should be registered in the name of Jan Shikshan Sansthan,
  • Building Plan should be approved by the local competent authority,
  • Estimates should be prepared either by Public Works Department or by a registered architect.

Action Plan and Budget
Before the commencement of the financial year each Jan Shikshan Sansthan would be required to formulate a comprehensive action plan indicating the programmes to be undertaken during the subsequent year and the achievements during the current year along with a detailed budget. Though in the financial pattern the allocations have been broadly indicated under 4 items only, it would be essential in the detailed budget to indicate the expenditure proposed to be incurred for each activity and sub items of expenditures is worked out. The Action Plan along with budget should be got duly approved by the Board of Management of the Jan Shikshan Sansthan when Government of India representative is present in the meeting.

Settlement of Accounts
As in the past the Jan Shikshan Sansthan will continue to submit the audited statement of accounts and utilisation certificate from the Chartered Accountant. In no case expenditure above the ceilings laid down under each item would be entertained unless the approval for excess expenditure under each item has been approved by the Board of Management of Jan Shikshan Sansthan when the representative of Central Government is present in the meeting. The unspent balance remaining at the end of the year shall immediately be reported to the Department so that the same is taken into account while reimbursing the grants for the next year. Permission of the Department would also have to be obtained for utilisation of the unspent balance of the previous year.

Reappropriation of Funds

  1. Normally the ceiling imposed under each broad category of expenditure will be adhered to. The general principles governing the re-appropriation under each item of expenditure would be as under:
  2. EMOLUMENTS
    As in the initial years, the provision under this item may not be utilised in full and the savings may be appropriated to Programme Expenditure, if required.
  3. OFFICE EXPENSES
    It is expected that the provision made under this item should be adequate. However, if excess expenditure is anticipated on account of purchase/replacement of certain office equipments on account of any unforeseen/unavoidable expenditure, this re-appropriation may be allowed from the savings under “Emoluments”.
  4. PROGRAMME EXPENDITURE (i.e. honorarium & T/L Material) While the Board of Management of the Shramik Vidyapeeth may allow re-appropriation from salaries and office expenses towards ‘Programme Expenditure’ no re-appropriation shall be permitted out of the allocations made for ‘Programme Expenditure’ for augmenting allocation for Emoluments and/or Office Expenses.
  5. It would be desirable that approval of the Board of Management for any re-appropriation is obtained by Jan Shikshan Sansthan when the representatives of the Central Government are present in the meeting.

  • Donations.
  • Consultancy fees for the programmes conducted by JSS on behalf of the other departments/agencies.
