Maharashtra: Government launches adopt a school scheme, SEBI CSR-certified entities eligible

September 20, 2023

The Maharashtra government has recently issued an order to implement its ‘Adopt a School’ initiative. According to the state’s school education directive, any individual, organization, or private entity possessing a CSR certificate registered with SEBI can choose to adopt a school currently managed by the state government, Zilla Parishad, or municipal councils, regardless of the school’s medium of instruction.

Those participating in the adoption program also have the option to add their chosen name alongside the existing school name during the specified adoption period. The adoption period can range from five to ten years.

For schools situated in A and B category municipal corporations like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation or Pune Municipal Corporation, interested parties looking to adopt a school will be required to contribute either Rs 2 crore for five years or Rs 3 crore for a ten-year adoption, as outlined in the government resolution.

These funds will be earmarked for various purposes, including enhancing the physical infrastructure, conducting repair work on school buildings, implementing painting and refurbishment, providing sanitation facilities, creating necessary infrastructure, and procuring sports equipment, according to an official.

The decision to launch this initiative aligns with the objectives outlined in the National Education Policy 2020.
