Delhi Government’s ‘Mission Buniyaad’ for primary children

  • The Delhi government on 20 February 2018, launched ‘Mission Buniyaad’  for improving learning skills of children studying in state and municipal-run schools.
  • The main objective of the mission is to ensure that students studying in primary schools in the Capital develop age-appropriate and class-appropriate reading and maths skills,
  • Under the mission  children will undergo a reading level assessment based on which they will be enrolled in specialised “Mission Buniyaad” classes. 
  • The Buniyaad classes will run in summer vacation from April to June for Class 3 to 5 in MCD  schools and for Class 6 to 8 in government’s schools.  
  • Delhi education department will run the campaign in “mission mode” for three months from April to June this year. 
  • The municipal bodies of Delhi that run primary schools in the city will raise a cadre of teachers who will drive the programme, in a manner similar to the Mentor Teacher Programme run in Delhi Government schools.
  • According to the Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia, the mission is being designed on the lines of Delhi government’s ‘Chunauti scheme’. 
  • The mission is based on the NAS survey  report which demonstrated that about half of all children in government schools were not able to read their grade level textbooks.
