Villagers benefit from Konkan Railway's 'Shiksha Abhiyaan' [DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India)]

(DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Belapur: As its commitment toward embracing actions for encouraging a positive impact on the society, Konkan Railway has started 'Konkan Rail Shiksha Abhiyan' on its route to spread computer and English language literacy amongst villagers along Konkan Railway route. The programme has already benefited around 11,839 village children who reside along Konkan Railway route.

In the 'Konkan Rail Shiksha Abhiyan', as many as 20 laptops and Notebooks and two mobile vans have been dedicated for this programme by Konkan Railway.

The programme has sprouted from the vision of the chairman and managing director of Konkan Railway, Bhanu Prakash Tayal, to spread basic computer literacy among all.

Konkan Railway launched the 'Shiksha Abhiyan' in August at its stations while the 'Mobile Shiksha Abhiyan' was started in June, in order to provide benefits of the programme to villagers at their respective villages itself.

The 'Shiksha Abhiyan' has been greatly appreciated by villagers and is benefiting them as they do not have access to computers. While the hands-on training on computers is instilling confidence in them, it is also opening a world of information. Syllabus is chalked out separately for children up to nine years, between 10-15 years and for those 15 years and above.

The training is conducted in three to four batches a day. Training is provided for 10 weeks on weekends and a certificate is issued to those who pass a simple examination at the end of the training.

Staff from the IT department of Konkan Railway conducts these programmes. Local station superintendent coordinates with local village sarpanchs or members of local organisations for conducting the programme and spreading information amongst villagers to attend the training.

Basic knowledge of computers, hardware and software basic information, office application, paint application, games, internet - theory as well as practical - is taught.

Some of the villages where the training programme has been organised are Ramnagara and Guddamadi villages near Senapura station, Belapu village near Padubidri station, Krishnapura village near Suratkal station, Fungus, Reel and Kolisara villages near Ratnagiri station and at Mangaon, Karanjadi, Diwankhavti, Kamathe, Bhoke, Aravali, Nandgaon, Sindhudurg, Balli, Manki and Barkur stations.
