    Tripura | Aug 12, 2019(PTI):

    Tripura government has approved the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, which allows no detention up to class four. The act, which was earlier passed by parliament, provides for a regular examination in classes fifth and eighth and if the child fails, he or she shall be given additional opportunity for re-examination in two months’ time.

    Tripura’s Education Minister said, “The council of ministers in Tripura in its meeting on Thursday has approved the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009. We have accepted the act, which was passed by the parliament earlier,” said Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath.

    Parliament had passed the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (Amendment) Bill, 2019 in January this year to amend a law to abolish the ‘no-detention policy’ till class VIII by enabling state governments to allow schools to fail students.

    “If students cannot clear the test in class V and VIII, they would be given the opportunity to appear the examination again in two months’ time. If students cannot clear the test for the second time, they would be detained in the respective classes,” Nath added.

    Five marks as grace could be given to a student having 85 per cent of attendance; Nath said adding headmasters of the schools will have a special power for giving relaxation to specially-abled students and promoting them.



    Bank CD ratio in Tripura rises to 66% in 16 months: CM


    Agartala | Aug 11 (IANS):

    The credit-deposit (CD) ratio of banks in Tripura increased by 18 per cent to 66 per cent from 48 per cent in the 16-month of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rule, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb said.

    However, it was still below the national average, said the Chief Minister while addressing a seminar on “Business and Industrial Development”, here on Friday.

    Remarking that the CD ratio of Gujarat is 120 per cent, Deb said it could be increased in Tripura by expanding trade, business and investment. Deb said Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked him at the recent NITI Aayog meeting to make Tripura the Rs 15,000 crore economy from the present Rs 8,000 crore economy.

    Had the Prime Minister not provided Rs 2,129 crore additional assistance, it would have been difficult to run the government in the state, said Deb, who is also the Tripura BJP chief.

    Stating that when the BJP came to power, Tripura had Rs 13,000 crore loan liabilities left behind by the Left Front government, the Chief Minister said the state government’s biggest monthly expenditure, Rs 820 crore, was on account of salaries to the government employees. Around 4.27 per cent people were in government jobs in Tripura, he added.

    In the past 16 months, the tax revenue had increased around three times, he said and added, there was a Rs 400 crore business opportunity in the fisheries sector. Over 20,000 tonnes of fish come to Tripura daily from Bangladesh, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh. He also pointed to huge business scope in rice milling, tea production, fruit processing, specially the pineapple and jackfruit, handicrafts and tourism sectors.

    To boost growth and make Tripura a model state, rallies and meetings by political parties must be reduced and working hours increased, the Chief Minister said.
